(WFXR) — Gov. Glenn Youngkin has ordered for flags across the Commonwealth to be flown at half-staff.

The order comes in honor and memory of Rep. Jackie Walorski who represented Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District. Walorski died on Wednesday, Aug. 3 in a car crash as well as her two dedicated staff members.

“This is a sad day for our country and Liberty University. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rep. Walorski’s family,” said Liberty University President Jerry Prevo. “We are grateful for her service and devotion to our nation as a member of Congress and most importantly for her faith in Christ. We know, and we are thankful that as believers in Jesus Christ, we will one day be with Him and all one day see each other again.”

Walorski was a former Liberty University student from 1981 to 1983, which was known as Liberty Baptist College. She later graduated from Taylor University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Administration in 1985.

“The Liberty family is saddened by the loss of Rep. Walorski,” said Campus Pastor Jonathan Falwell. “While her time at LU was many years ago, she has been a great example of what it means to be a Champion for Christ. We are praying for the families involved in this tragic accident.”

All flags at state and local buildings in the Commonwealth were lowered at sunrise on Thursday, Aug. 4, and will remain that way until sunset.
