Congressman Steny Hoyer will deliver the eulogy. Gov. Larry Hogan and Rob Etgen, president of the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, are also scheduled to speak.
Hughes was Maryland’s 57th governor, serving two terms from 1979 until 1987. His administration has been credited with restoring integrity to state government after an era of political corruption, and of launching broad efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay.
