Future Observances Scheduled

  • None at this time.

The Governor orders that the flags atop the State Capitol be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset on Friday, November 19, 2021, in honor of Senator Hugh K. Leatherman, Sr. and in recognition of his extraordinary legacy of selfless statesmanship and his lifetime of distinguished service to the State of South Carolina, including as a member and President Pro Tempore Emeritus of the South Carolina Senate and chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and the Governor requests that the flags over state buildings and buildings of the political subdivisions of this State similarly be flown at half-staff for this purpose.
