Not incidentally, Jim Morgan's achievements as CEO of semiconductor equipment company Applied Materials for a quarter-century (1977 to 2003)are recognized within management circles as representing the best among the best. During Jim's tenure, Applied Materials' shareholders enjoyed the highest rate of return on investment of any Silicon Valley stock, bar none.

Jim's achievements are legendary, as are Becky's. Well deserved Lifetimes of Achievement Award, yet further examples of those who have helped make Silicon Valley great.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
