Lottery hires diversity manager

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A former employee of the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation has been tapped to be the new Arkansas lottery minority and diversity business enterprise manager. Ernestine Middleton, the lottery's vice president of administration, says Ivan Hudson began working for the lottery on Wednesday and will receive an annual salary of $65,000.

Last month, lottery officials told the Arkansas Lottery Commission Legislative Oversight Committee that contracting with members of minority groups businesses is a priority for the lottery. Middleton says she interviewed 12 to 15 applicants for the position.

Hudson had worked for the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation as a program associate since December. He also was coordinator of minority and women business development for the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce from 2007-2008. --- Information from: Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, http://www.arkansasonline.com
