In the last 12 months, Sherman, Texas has locked in more than $35 billion in development from tech companies like Texas Instruments and GlobalWafers. What's been the growth in the community of less than 50,000 near the Red River? And will we ultimately see the Sherman-Denison area start to merge into Dallas-Fort Worth? Kent Sharp, president of the Sherman Economic Development Corporation, explains how the projects came to be; City manager Robby Hefton looks ahead to what Sherman will do to prepare for the plants to come online in 2025; and University of Texas at Dallas professor Dr. James Harrington says the corridor from Sherman to McKinney could start to see more development.
