History of Mark:
This striking landmark in the center of The Hill is a large fountain plaza with compass point entrances, dappling pools, and anchored with a 8 ft bronze abstract sculpture, The Flight of Leadership. Named for President Emeritus Robert L. D. Davidson, (1955-1973), who was instrumental in bringing the Winston Churchill Memorial and Library to Westminster College, the Plaza was built with a generous contribution from an alumnus. It stands to commemorate Westminster's first 150 years of delivering outstanding education and serves as a catalyst for the next 150 years.
