Eight finalists are named as the SCEL draw persona

Columbia, SC: The South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL)
is proud to announce the names of the eight (8) finalists for draw personalities.
"These South Carolinians people will be the new faces of the lottery",
says SCEL's Executive Director Ernie Passailaigue.  "It was a very
difficult selection process.  Everyone was top notch and the real
winners are the people of our great state.  We are proud of the extra
ordinary talent that we have assembled to do our drawings".>

A live audition was held on Saturday, February 23, 2002 at Columbiana
Centre.  The 19 semi-finalists were asked warm-up questions about
themselves and then performed a 60 second live audition with a draw machine. 
Hundreds of mall spectators stood by watching. The five member selection
panel looked at the candidates for poise, charisma, energy and their comfort
level in front of the camera. "This took a lot of courage to come here
and speak in front of a crowd", says Passailaigue.

The following winners have been invited to become one of the SCEL's
draw personalities.  They will work on a rotating schedule and will
be compensated $100 per draw plus mileage.  This is contingent upon
a signed contract between the SCEL and the winner.

The names in alphabetical order are:
Jeffery Black:  Manning
Julie Bokinac:  Myrtle Beach
Judy DuBose:  Hanahan
George Godfrey:  Columbia
Whitney Kigos :  Isle of Palms
