Georgia Lottery Board Announces Interim President

Sunday, September 7, 2003

ATLANTA – The Georgia Lottery Corporation's (GLC) Board of Directors met this morning to name an interim president. In a unanimous vote, the GLC's Board of Directors has named Cathy Walls as interim President of the GLC. Ms. Walls has the full support of the entire Board and the authority to run the GLC's day-to-day operations. The GLC's Board will immediately begin the process of searching for the best available candidate to fill the position of President in a permanent capacity.

According to Board Chair Barbara Dooley, "Ms. Walls brings a wealth of lottery expertise and has the leadership experience required to guide the Georgia Lottery Corporation during this transitional phase."

Ms. Walls, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs with the Georgia Lottery Corporation, has been with the Lottery since its inception in 1993. She is responsible for managing all internal and external communication activities for the Lottery, including media relations, legislative affairs, Board liaison, public information, human resources and the Web site. She serves as a member of executive staff and as such is instrumental in developing and implementing long-term management objectives and operating policy.

"The Georgia Lottery Corporation is established upon a solid foundation, and we are dedicated to maintaining continuity during this period of transition," said Ms. Walls. "Maximizing revenues for educational programs in Georgia remains our ultimate priority."

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $6 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
