On Friday, Governor Roy Cooper ordered all North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff beginning Friday, Jan. 29, 2021 until sunset on Saturday, January 30, 2021, in honor of sitting Chairman Freddie Lee Carter Jr. of the Coharie Intra Tribal Council Inc., who died Tuesday. A native of Sampson County, he served as chairman of the Coharie Intra Tribal Council since 2011 and contributed more than 20 years of service within various capacities of the Coharie Tribal Government.

Also while serving as chairman, the Coharie Tribe was presented the “Water Conservationist of the Year” award in 2019 by Governor Roy Cooper.

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the duration of time indicated.
