Red Oak graduate to attend UT Dallas as McDermott Scholar
RED OAK - Red Oak High School graduate Christopher McClure is one of 23 students to be named as part of the Eugene McDermott Scholars Program at The University of Texas at Dallas.
As a McDermott Scholar, McClure will have educational expenses – including tuition and fees, and stipends for living expenses and books, travel and post-graduation preparation – covered for the next four years.
A wide variety of cultural and educational enrichment experiences in the Dallas area and beyond will also be offered.
The McDermott Scholars Program was made possible by a $32 million gift from Margaret McDermott, wife of the late Eugene McDermott, one of the co-founders of Texas Instruments (TI).
McDermott and two of his TI co-founders, Cecil Green and Erik Jonsson, both of whom also are deceased, founded the research institute that in 1969 became UT Dallas.
