HBAM Announces Housing Hall of Fame Inductee
The Mississippi Housing Hall of Fame was established in 1988 to honor individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to housing in Mississippi, the building industry and HBAM.

This year, the  Housing Hall of Fame is inducting John Holliman of the Golden Triangle Home Builders Association.

A committed advocate, John joined the association in 1972. Since then, he has built over 20 subdivisions and over 2000 homes in addition to serving in leadership roles at the state and local level.

John is not only a servant to our association, but to his community. During his tenure, he has created a lasting impact in his community and the services it provides. 

John will be inducted on June 28th, 2017 at the Hall of Fame Banquet during the State Convention & Educational Conference.

Congratulations, John!
