Using Feature Attribute Field as TextSymbol

I've been trying to figure this out for about two days now.  I have a CSVLayer that I'm plotting using a standard marker symbol.  I have to use a symbol because I need to be able to sample the points as a graphic layer for the popup widget.  Which all works fine.  However, I need to NOT plot a simple marker symbol, I need the symbol to be a TextSymbol that is one of the attribute fields of the CSVLayer.  I cannot find a good example online anywhere.  This doesn't seem like it should be this hard.  Does anyone have an example or can tell me where to find an applicable example? 

Thanks in advance!
