For Delaware Only
Governor Carney has ordered the U.S. and Delaware flags lowered to half staff beginning the morning of Friday June 7 through Monday morning June 10 in remembrance of former State Representative Robert Powell and former Delaware State University President Dr. William DeLauder.
Mr. Powell was first elected to the Delaware General Assembly in November 1972 and represented Pike Creek and the surrounding areas from 1973 to 1982. During his tenure he served as Chair of the House Financial Services and Banking Committee.
Dr. DeLauder served as president of Delaware State University from 1987-2003. He led a significant transformation at DSU, investing in the school’s facilities, adding new educational programs, and attracting more students from Delaware and out of state to study at the university. He helped make DSU what it is today – a strong institution of higher education that is helping lead our state into the future.
Flags are to be returned to full staff Monday morning, June 10.
**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
