AND NOW, SOME MOTIVATION
Dallas Mavericks prez Terdema Ussery spoke about the dichotomy of growing up in Watts then attending Princeton and Harvard as he addressed 420 attendees at the Real Estate Council's 2010 Community Breakfast. Calling himself the child everyone looked through, he said that his success was the result of adults who cared about him. For Dallas to be a great city, he added, it has to be a great city for everyone.
Terdema is joined by Deloitte’s Jim Berry, Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, TREC prez Michelle Corson, and Stewart Title’s Melissa Eastman. In his speech, Terdema challenged everyone to help a child who may need a hand; it's one reason he serves as prez of the Dallas Mavericks Foundation and chairman of the Dallas Housing Authority board.
