Health Center Credit Union CEO recognized as LSCU Professional of the Year for Georgia

Stacy Tallent, CEO for Health Center Credit Union, has been recognized by the  League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates as the 2019 LSCU Professional of the Year for Georgia.

“When thinking of credit unions, you likely recall the motto, ‘Not for profit, not for charity, but for service.’ At Health Center Credit Union, Stacy exemplifies the meaning of leading with a servant’s heart. He prioritizes the needs of members, staff and community above his own. He is always willing to lend a hand and help wherever and whenever,” said Lisa Mahaffey, Tallent’s coworker.

The LSCU Credit Union Professional of the Year Award is given to an outstanding individual for his or her professional contributions to advance the credit union movement in their state and the nation.

“Stacy leads with passion at HCCU and within the community. Most conversations with him lead to one about the credit union. His words, however, are backed up with action,” Mahaffey said. “He is involved locally with Shepeard Community Blood Center, Augusta University Foundation, Augusta Rotary Club and the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. Each quarter he rolls up his sleeves and volunteers at HCCU’s free shred day and blood drive. For these reasons, Stacy personifies the spirit of the credit union movement.”
