News Release

February 10, 2015

PHOENIX - Governor Doug Ducey has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff from Tuesday, February 10, 2015 until sunset Wednesday, February 11, 2015, in honor of Kayla Mueller, a Prescott resident killed while serving a humanitarian aid mission in Syria.

"The hearts of all Arizonans are heavy today, and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with her family. And while it may be of small comfort for such an unknowable loss, I pray that Kayla Mueller's parents find solace in knowing that this state and nation will forever remember their daughter, and the lasting impression she left. She did more good in her 26 years than many do in a lifetime. We should honor her by striving every day to follow her noble example."

Governor Ducey encourages all Arizonans to join in this tribute.
