ASC sports new Stars & Stripes

(03-26-2009)

Adams States is flying new, all-weather U.S. and Colorado flags. In addition, all-night lighting was installed to illuminate the flags in front of Richardson Hall, permitting the flags to be displayed at all times. This means flags needn't be lowered each evening to comply with proper flag protocol. Previously, staff from both the ASC Police Department and Facilities Services were required to raise and lower the flags daily. Stiff winds and foul weather complicated the procedure. "I'm really proud of this small step to respect our flags," said Dr. Joel Shults, Chief of ASCPD.
