Longtime Alaska lawmaker Bettye Davis has passed away at the age of 80.

In one of his first official acts as governor, Mike Dunleavy ordered state flags lowered to half-staff for Davis effective Dec. 31, when their current time at half-staff ends in memory of former president George H.W. Bush.

“Bettye Davis was an Alaskan trailblazer,” Dunleavy said in a statement Monday evening. “She will always be remembered for her steadfast dedication and determination to help children and improve Alaska’s public education system.”
