The LSCU (League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates) Credit Union Professional of the Year Award is awarded to an outstanding individual for his or her professional contributions to advance the credit union movement in their state and the nation.  Announced October 14, 2020, the 2019 LSCU Professional of the Year for Georgia is Mr. Stacy Tallent, President & CEO of Health Center CU (HCCU). 

Mr. Tallent was nominated for this award due to his dedication to HCCU and its members. When thinking of Credit Unions, you likely recall the motto “Not for Profit, Not for Charity, but for Service”.  At HCCU, 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.

The credit union movement is alive and well at HCCU thanks to Stacy’s leadership.  He reminds the staff our members come first because without members there is no credit union.  Stacy actively works on the Board of Directors for Member Core Alliance and Members ATM Alliance to allow credit unions to partner together.  This allows for better rates and fewer fees to better serve members.  To give his members a voice, Stacy serves on the Georgia Credit Union League Committee and on the CUNA Small Credit Union Committee.  Known by many as the, “Golf Man”, he worked with area credit unions to coordinate the Annual Golf tournament with proceeds donated to CUPAC.

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.  He is involved locally with Sheppard 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 “people helping people” spirit of the credit union movement, and has been making a difference in our community for over 24 years.

Our FREE Shred Days are typically the 2nd Saturday in January, and last Saturday of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Quarters.

Our next Shred Day is 1/9/2020 and will be a joint Shred Day & BLOOD DRIVE 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Evans Branch Parking Lot (4339 Washington Rd Evans GA 30809).  Shepeard Community Blood Center will be on site accepting donations.  All monetary donations will be accepted for the GA War Veterans Nursing Home.

Paper items only! Please look through what you are shredding and make sure nothing is flammable/could cause damage to the machine (Binder Clips, laptop batteries, aerosol cans, lighters, food or general trash etc.).

There is a 150lb limit per person.  Commercial shredding is subject to a fee/mandatory donation.

These events are free public events, but we will be accepting donations for various causes.
