Sargent's Work with CMN Helps Save Granddaughter's Life
BEAVERTON, Ore. -- After nearly 20 years of volunteering with the Children's Miracle Network, First Tech Credit Union President/CEO Tom Sargent saw the fruits of his labor of love first hand.
"I've been involved with Children's Miracle Network directly or indirectly since 1988," Sargent, who was recently named chairman of the CMN Board of Trustees, explained. When he got his credit union involved with Portland, Oregon's Doernbecher Children's Hospital at that time, First Tech organized candy bar sales and other fundraising ideas for credit unions in the state. "One of the stated goals of our credit union is we want to be a philanthropic organization," Sargent explained.
