William Jervis Mims of Hattiesburg was recently inducted into the Mississippi Housing Hall of Fame, the highest honor given by the Home Builders Association of Mississippi (HBAM). Mims was inducted during ceremonies held June 5 at the HBAM State Convention at the Hilton Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort in Florida. Hall of Fame inductees are chosen annually by a committee charged with selecting outstanding honorees making significant contributions within the home building industry as well as their own communities.
Mims, a graduate of Forrest County AHS in Brooklyn, attended the University of Southern Mississippi and served in the United States Naval Reserve from 1952 until 1960. He grew up around the building business, working with his uncle, who was a local builder, while still in high school.
