WEST VIRGINIA – Due to Presidential Proclamation issued from President Trump and the Executive Order issued from Governor Justice, all county school systems will be closed tomorrow (December 5) in observance of the day of mourning in honor of President George H.W. Bush.
Gov. Jim Justice announced today that Wednesday, December 5, 2018, will be a state holiday in observance of tomorrow’s National Day of Mourning for President George H.W. Bush.
Bush, 94, died last Friday and President Donald J. Trump designated Dec. 5 as a federal holiday to honor and commemorate the life of the 41st President of the United States.
“President George H.W. Bush was truly a great American military hero,” Gov. Justice said. “I concur with President Trump and his decision to declare December 5th as a National Day of Mourning and I am issuing an executive order to close all state agencies tomorrow in observance of his declaration.”
The Governor’s press conference scheduled for Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. in Bridgeport, WV has been canceled and will be rescheduled.
