Topeka, KS– In accordance with Executive Order #20-30, and following the proclamation of President Joe Biden, Governor Laura Kelly has directed flags be lowered to half-staff throughout the state effective immediately to sunset Sunday, March 27, 2022. 

“Secretary Madeleine Albright was a trailblazer, a role model – an agent for change,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “She was a true pioneer that inspired an entire generation of women. I’m sad to learn of her passing, but I know she leaves behind a legacy that continues to pave the way for so many of us.”
