Flags at state offices and agencies will be flown at half staff on Saturday, Dec. 28, in honor of former Lt. Gov. Jean Sadako King.
Saturday is the day of King’s memorial services.
She served for two years in the state House and four years in the state senate before being elected to serve as Hawaii’s first female lieutenant governor in 1978.
State officials say King worked throughout her life in support of the homeless, the environment and peace.
