On Saturday, November 9 at the annual Celebration of Excellence the Home Builders Association of South Carolina (HBASC) will award Berkley White, President of Classic Homes in Myrtle Beach, and Jon Statom of Palmetto Exterminators, Inc., in Greenville, the Thomas N.

Both awards are given to individuals who demonstrate tireless service to their community, Home Builders Association (HBA) and to the home building industry.

Jon has been active in local Habitat for Humanity renovations and is a fervent supporter of the Home Building industry and the HBA.
According to Michael Dey, Executive Vice President of the HBA of Greenville, “Jon Statom’s tenet, which he practices every day, is to work toward the benefit of our community, industry and association. Jon has quietly, but consistently served our association for more than a decade, and has become a valuable member of our association’s leadership team.” Statom was named HBA of Greenville Associate Member of the Year in 2012.
Berkley White will be honored for his tireless dedication to the home building industry and the HBA. Berkley has been a member of the Horry-Georgetown HBA since 1997 and is a co-founder of Classic Homes with his mother Susan, and is joined by his wife Kim. A Certified Master Builder, Berkley has served as President of the Horry-Georgetown HBA and on the Board of HBASC. Classic Homes has been chosen as the area’s exclusive member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program.
According to many of his peers, Berkley is a highly regarded Home Builder and member of his community. Rose Anne O’Reilly, Executive Director of the Horry-Georgetown HBA, calls him “an asset to the entire industry and his community. Berkley exemplifies the title ‘Thomas N.
