Rose J. Hudson was confirmed today by Gov. Kathleen Blanco, as the fourth president of the Louisiana Lottery Corporation. Last Wednesday, the Lottery's board of directors unanimously appointed Hudson to the position. Hudson has been serving as interim president since March 16 after the former president, Randy Davis, resigned to pursue an opportunity in the private sector.
Hudson holds a masters degree in public administration and a Senior Professional in Human Resources designation. She has served as senior vice president at the Lottery for the last six years, directing the corporation's human resources and legislative affairs functions.
Prior to her tenure at the Lottery, Hudson served as assistant superintendent at the Louisiana Department of Education and as undersecretary of the Louisiana Department of Social Services.
An active member of the community, Hudson has held many leadership positions on civic boards, including Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting. She was recently named to the board of the Association of Junior Leagues International.
