Local home builder Sam Clifton, owner of Millstone Custom Homes LLC, was named HBA Builder Member of the Year at the Home Builder Association of Greater Springfield’s annual awards banquet, held Sept. 21.

Clifton is a member of the organization’s board of directors and his wife, Michelle Clifton is a past board member of the HBA Charitable Foundation, according to an HBA news release.

The Cliftons’ homes have been featured in the HBA Parade of Homes, and in June 2009, Millstone Custom Homes led the construction of a home for ABC television show “Extreme Home Makeover:
Home Edition.”

Other honorees during the banquet were:
• Steve Hamm, U.S. Bank, Associate Member of the Year;
• Herrman Lumber, Associate Company of the Year and Education Partner of the Year, company award;
• Barb Houser, Kirkpatrick, Phillips & Miller, CPAs PC, Education Partner of the Year, individual award:
• Cara Restelli, KY3 Inc., Education Partner of the Year, media award;
• Jeff Fahrlander, Fahrlander Custom Homes, Ambassador of the Year;
• Sheila Collins, New Horizons Hardwood, Most Involved New Member, individual award;
• Accent Curbz, Most Involved New Member, company award;
• Debi Murray, Murney Associates, Charitable Foundation Volunteer of the Year;
• Jeremy Ray, Citizens National Bank, Coalition for Building A Better Tomorrow Volunteer of the Year;
• Rusty MacLachlan, HBA president and owner of J. Russell MacLachlan Custom Homes, Government Affairs Volunteer of the Year; and
• Ron Middleton and Taylor Marble, the individual and company inductees into the HBA Hall of Fame. Middleton, who died earlier this year, was a longtime HBA member and leader.

Some of the awards are based on nominations submitted by members to the awards committee, while others are based on established criteria and volunteer service, the release said.

“This industry has confronted its share of challenges during the past year, and yet, so many members have demonstrated they are willing to raise the chin bar for themselves,” MacLachlan said in the release. “This recognition … made it clear we’ve had no shortage of leadership and professional excellence this year.”[[In-content Ad]]
