Bethea to Step Down in October as SC Lottery Director

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Lottery Director Paula Harper Bethea says she is stepping down from her job at the end of October.

Bethea released a statement Wednesday saying she only planned to work for about five more years when named to lead the lottery in 2009, and has enjoyed the honor and privilege of her job.

Bethea has been with the state lottery since it started in 2001. The board that runs the lottery hired the Hilton Head Island public relations executive to be the lottery's first secretary.

Legal Services Director Hogan Brown will serve as interim director while the lottery looks for a new leader.

Bethea was the South Carolina lottery's second director, taking over for Ernie Passailaigue.
