I am sending text to a Thingspeak field and would like to display it somehow on the Thingspeak dashboard. Any help on this topic is appreciated.

There are at least two good ways to do this at present. The easiest is to use the staus field, then enable the show status checkbox on your channel settings.
You can use the write data API call with a status message.
See, and for more information.
Second, you can use a MATLAB visualization to read and print the text and then display the visualization on your channel view.
Id use thingSpeakRead and then printf or disp to show the output text.

Here is the overview on the visualizations app:
