    Bank of McKenney and Red Cross

    Bank of McKenney offered a Red Cross “Heartsavers® CPR class” to its employees in March 2011, under the instruction of one of our directors, Harry Baird, who has been an American Heart Association (AHA) CPR Instructor for 15 years.  

    Thirteen employees accepted the challenge this year.  These employees took time out of their busy personal lives to better themselves and learn the skills that may one day save you or your loved one’s life!

    The Bank offered the same course two years ago and it is worth noting that when combining the people who were trained for the first time this year and those who trained 2 years ago, we can say that nearly 25% of our employees have been “equipped” to help when needed.  

    We would like to recognize and thank the following employees for attending the classes.
