Mayor Jose Segarra has ordered the City of Killeen flag to half-staff Thursday in honor and memory of former Councilwoman Rosa Hereford.
Hereford earned the distinction of being elected Killeen’s first female councilmember in 1984. She served six distinguished terms from 1984 to 1990 and from 1991 to 1997. Her service is commemorated by photos that hang in City Hall.
Flags will return to full staff at sunset Thursday.
