The Perot Museum celebrates the life and legacy of an extraordinary leader in the North Texas community, Mrs. Margaret McDermott. Mrs. McDermott was a tireless champion of education and culture who shared our passion for inspiring the leaders of tomorrow.

“Through her spirit of giving and remarkable leadership, Mrs. McDermott impacted the lives of generations of North Texans,” said Dr. Linda Silver, Eugene McDermott Chief Executive Officer of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. “I am proud that the Museum’s CEO position is a lasting tribute to her family’s legacy of innovation and generosity. We will be forever grateful.”
