HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 6, 2013 – As a mark of respect for the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela, High Point University will fly all flags at half-staff from sunrise today until sunset on Dec. 9.

Mandela led South Africa away from apartheid and is now a symbol of peace and reconciliation. He was imprisoned for nearly 30 years for his fight against white minority rule before being released and becoming the country’s first black president. He died yesterday at the age of 95.
