- Family Legacy Award
For nearly a century, four generations of the Graf family have found a home at IU. Alan's maternal grandfather, Harry Huncilman, graduated in 1922 with a degree in business. Alan's father, Alan Sr., received his bachelor's degree from IU in 1951 and an MBA in 1954, and Alan's mother, Harriet Graf, received a bachelor's degree in education in 1952.
Following in his family's footsteps, Alan attended IU, earning a bachelor's degree in 1975 and an MBA in 1977. Alan and Susan's oldest daughter, Bridget, is also a Hoosier alum, receiving a degree in journalism in 2003.
Alan is now chief financial officer and executive vice president at FedEx Corp. As a student, he was greatly influenced by Kelley School of Business faculty, which inspired the Grafs to establish the Graf Family Professorship in honor of Alan's father. The Graf Conference Room at the Kelley School is also named in honor of Alan Sr., and the Grafs have contributed to the Godfrey Graduate and Executive Education Center at the school. Within IU Athletics, the Grafs have supported annual scholarships for student-athletes as well as the Varsity Club and the IU Stadium Club and Suites.
Alan serves on the IU Foundation Board of Directors, the IU Alumni Association's Executive Council and the Kelley Alumni Board. Within the Kelley School, he is also a member of the Dean's Council and the Academy of Alumni Fellows and has been a CFO Roundtable participant.
IU Foundation recognized the Graf family with the Family Legacy Award in gratitude for their tradition of volunteerism and generosity toward Indiana University.
