Leadership Columbia: Revitalizing the Lincoln St. Tunnel

On Thursday, April 20th, the Leadership Columbia Class of 2017 gathered with Mayor Steve Benjamin for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil WatermarkedSC – their months-long beautification project at the Lincoln Street tunnel.

The 60-member Leadership Columbia class developed WatermarkedSC as a way to commemorate the incredible spirit and unity of Columbia and its people in the wake of the city’s historic flooding in 2015. Through a combination of murals, historical markers, landscaping, and art installations, Leadership Columbia has given new life to the 100-year-old railroad tunnel and surrounding area.

Colite is incredibly proud to have been a part of this effort, both as an official sponsor and through the hard work of our very own Holly West (a graduate of the Leadership Columbia Class of 2017) and Taylor Webb (designer of the WatermarkedSC sculpture).
