Captain Wayne Magwood and his father Captain Clarence Magwood, Jr. fished the Lowcountry waters for over 100 years. Their lifetime dedication to the community they served brought them and the many people they helped and mentored much joy. Captain Wayne Magwood’s daughters Tressy Magwood Mellichamp, Jennifer Magwood Ray, Tara Magwood and Melissa Magwood, in partnership with the Town of Mount Pleasant, are raising funds to erect a statue in the likeness of Captain Wayne Magwood to be housed on the Magwood Boardwalk on Shem Creek to honor their father and the local maritime industry.
Your donation to the Fishermen’s Memorial Statue at the Shem Creek Pedestrian Bridge is much appreciated and will help recognize the Mount Pleasant fishing fleet and preserve its rich maritime history. All donations are tax deductible.
