Turnbull Designates April 7 Cyril Emmanuel King Day

April 5, 2006 – Beginning Friday and forever after, each April 7 will be designated as Cyril Emmanuel King Day in the Virgin Islands, thanks to a proclamation issued by Gov. Charles W. Turnbull on Wednesday.
"Through the dedicated efforts of Governor Cyril E. King, the social, political and economic standards in the territory were enhanced," Turnbull said.
The proclamation includes many of King's achievements, as well as biographical information.
The airport on St. Thomas, formerly named for President Harry S. Truman, was renamed in King's honor in October 1990.
Turnbull asks the people of the Virgin Islands to remember the contributions King made to the territory by joining him in observing Cyril Emmanuel King Day each year on King's birthday.
