Flags to be flown at Half-Staff in honor of former President


TOPEKA, KAN. — Governor Jeff Colyer has ordered flags to be flown at Half-Staff in honor of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush who died on Friday at the age of 94. The Governor has ordered flags to be flown at Half-Staff for the next 30 days.

Bush was our 41st President and was in office from 1989-1993. Prior to becoming President Bush served as Ronald Reagan’s vice president from 1981-1989.

“I was saddened to hear last night of the passing of President George H.W. Bush, whom I had the privilege to serve under as a White House fellow,” Colyer said in a press release. His hard work and dedication over decades of public service was matched only by his love and devotion to his wife Barbara and his children. His contributions at every level of his personal and political life have truly made our country and our world a better place. My prayers are with the Bush family during their time of grieving.”
