Clyde Padgett, the long-time volunteer for Truliant FCU (formerly AT&T Family) and known to many for his work on Capitol Hill in the run-up to the vote on HR 1151, was given a surprise "roast" to honor his 50-plus years in credit unions, including 17 as TFCU's chairman. Among those who turned out for the roast were Rep. Richard Burr, and the CEOs of numerous other area CUs. At the event a portrait of Padgett was unveiled that will hang in the Truliant Board Room, and the Clyde O. Padgett Scholarship was also announced.
