TBA Hall of Fame Inductees

The City of Tallahassee Natural Gas Utility is a proud sponsor of the TBA Hall of Fame. Each year, the TBA adds one member to a list of elite individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to the local building industry.  Selected by the past recipient, which means they have won the admiration and respect of their peers and are richly deserving of this honor, the 2019 recipient was Vicki O’Neil of The City of Tallahassee Natural Gas Utility. Having been involved with the TBA for many years,Vicki has demonstrated her passion for the association by serving on the Board of Directors and many committees, as well as volunteering her time and talents in support of the TBA at community events.

Anyone who  has been a part of Vicki’s time as one of our leaders, knows first-hand that she takes her role seriously because she believes that participation is about making a difference in people’s lives. For her longtime dedication to TBA, and legacy of performance, our 2019 Hall of Fame inductee is:
