EDWARDS — Longtime local contractor Jim Guida was recently honored at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas. Guida was awarded two of the highest honors given by the National Association of Home Builders — Graduate Master Builder and Graduate Master Remodeler.

The designations are the ultimate symbol of a building professional and are reserved for experienced veterans only. The Graduate Master's Program requires an intensive series of courses and advanced building knowledge. Guida is only the fifth person to receive the Graduate Master Builder designation in Colorado.

It's quite an honor to be part of such an elite group of builders," Guida said. "It probably best demonstrates my commitment to education and desire to stay on top of our industry."

Guida and his wife, Beth, raised three children in the Vail Valley and currently live in Heritage Park in Edwards. For more information, call 970 845-9100.
