Both awards are given to individuals who demonstrate the same qualities as the awards namesake, Thomas N. Bagnal.

Jimmy Thompkins will be honored for his tireless dedication to the home building industry and the HBA.

Jimmy started Thompkins Construction Company in 1958 and has continued to successfully apply his trade since. Jimmy has served as President of his local association and on the Boards of both the Horry-Georgetown HBA and the HBASC and is widely recognized as a community leader.

According to many of his peers, Jimmy 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. Jimmy exemplifies the title “Thomas N. Bagnal Builder Member of the Year” for his efforts as a builder, member of our association, community volunteer and friend.”

Raymond Goodman has been an ardent supporter of the home building industry and a member of the HBA of Horry-Georgetown for more than 10 years. He serves on multiple committees and on the Boards of the HBA of Horry-Georgetown,  HBASC and the National Association of Home Builders. Raymond has also been an active leader in his community. Raymond’s fervent support of the home building industry and the HBA is evident in his actions and support.

According to Rose Anne O’Reilly, Executive Director of the Horry-Georgetown, “I believe that Raymond wakes every morning with the goal to work toward the benefit of our community, industry and association and he purposely strives toward that goal every day.”  Raymond has quietly, but consistently served our association for more than a decade, and has become a valuable member of our association’s leadership team.”

The HBASC commends both men on their commitment to the home building industry and to their community.
