Gov. Reynolds orders flags at half-staff in honor of Secretary Madeleine Albright 

Kim Reynoldshttps://governor.iowa.gov/about-the-governor
As Iowa’s 43rd Governor, Kim Reynolds is determined to make sure that Iowa’s success is every Iowan’s success. Whether it’s preparing Iowans for cutting-edge careers, fighting for education, improving healthcare and mental health access, or empowering our rural communities, Kim’s priorities are making a difference in all four corners of the state. Her vision keeps Iowans at the center of all decisions, especially in the area of fiscal responsibility. Kim knows that when Iowa taxpayers are able to keep more of their money, great things happen. She also believes in redemption. Kim’s justice reform initiatives carefully balance second chances with victim rights. As Governor, Kim’s strong voice for international trade, agriculture, and advanced manufacturing is opening new markets and maintaining relationships with leaders in China, Mexico, Canada, Israel, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Germany, Brazil and Argentina, to name just a few. Although she’s traveled the world telling Iowa’s story, Kim is still a small-town girl at heart with common-sense values. These principles are reflected in the Governor’s Empower Rural Iowa initiative and Future Ready Iowa. At age 57, Kim earned a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University. Then, nearly two years later, on Nov. 4, 2018, she was elected by Iowans to become their first woman Governor. Family means everything to Kim and her husband, Kevin. They have three daughters (Jennifer, Nicole and Jessica) who are happily married, and Kim and Kevin love spending time with their 10 very active grandchildren.

Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff immediately until sunset of March 27, in honor and remembrance of U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Albright died on March 23, 2022, at the age of 84. She was the first female U.S. Secretary of State. “Madeleine Albright was an extraordinary woman and trailblazer who selflessly served our country,” said Gov. Reynolds. “The Secretary of State cared deeply about our world and those within it and had a major impact on countless lives. Kevin and I join with Iowans in celebrating her life and her accomplishments.” 
The governor’s order is issued in conjunction with President Joe Biden’s proclamation to lower the United States’ flag to half-staff.   
Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be half-staff on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state.   
Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flags at half-staff for the same length of time.
