On Saturday, October 17th, 2015 FAEC bestowed the honors of the FAEC “Edison Award” upon Ms. Kimberly A, DeBerry of Jacksonville, FL.
Kim’s family has been involved with FAEC since the early 1980s. David A. DeBerry, Sr., Kim’s father was honored as a FAEC “Hall of Fame Honoree” in 1994. David, Sr. believed in giving back to the electrical industry and instilled that in his children, along with honesty and hard work.
She and her brother David have both served as State Presidents of the FAEC and are still involved today as board members of the FAEC, an association that is very instrumental to our industry.
Kim has worked in the electrical trade for 31 years and is licensed in Florida and Georgia. Throughout her time in the electrical trade she has served as President of the Duval County Master’s Association and served on the Electrical Licensing Board.
Kim is very involved with the Northeast Florida Builder’s Association’s Apprenticeship program. Currently she serves on the executive committee and the electrical division committee of the apprenticeship program. She also mentors in high schools to promote apprenticeship training.
Kim serves as the building committee chairperson for her church, Dunns Creek Baptist Church. She feels that God has blessed her company and she wants to give back by serving.
