Her influence was monumental. Her manner was unassuming. Her generosity was legendary. And her smile was unforgettable. At 106, Margaret Milam McDermott was the personification of purpose. She died Thursday, leaving a decades-long legacy of giving and community involvement.
“Today is a sad day – for Mary and me, for our Texas Instruments family around the world, for the Dallas/Fort Worth community, and for thousands whose lives have been touched by Margaret McDermott,” said Rich Templeton, chairman, president and CEO of Texas Instruments.
The TIAA Golf Tournament served as a kick-off to the TI United Way Campaign, as some 92 golfers teed off for the 19th annual event at the Woodbridge Golf Club in Wyle, TX.

The TIAA 2018 United Way campaign began April 9 and continues through April 25, with Dallas-area TIAA members doing their part to get involved and help their fellow North Texans.

The new brand name was chosen to emphasize the service the company provides in helping retirees gain coverage that suits their needs. The word via literally means “traveling through a place to a destination.”

Their building was finished in 1992, has 17 floors and contains a vault full of money that is loaned to other banks in the 11th district. This area includes parts of southern New Mexico, Texas and upper Louisiana which explains why, when Houston called right after Hurricane Harvey and said "We need $500M", Dallas could say "Send the armored truck tomorrow -- it will be ready." We cleared security without a hitch and took a
