The phased, multi-year refurbishment won multiple awards, including the Sussex County Beautification Award.

HOTEL PONCE DE LEON CIVIL RIGHTS MARKER - MARKER COPY & PROJECT COORDINATION
Working in partnership with Flagler College, their Diversity & Inclusion office, and Black Student Union, we installed a Civil Rights marker commemorating a sit-in within the dining hall of the then-segregated Hotel Ponce De Leon just four years before the founding of Flagler College. I led a team to bring this marker to life by sorting through FBI and police records, illustrating concept art, writing the marker copy, and worked with the manufacturer to turn proofs into physical marker. In conjunction, our team presented our vision and design to the College's President and board and secured the necessary funding to build and install the marker in 2022, 58 years to the day the sit-in took place.
