|“It gives me chill bumps to be perfectly honest, because it is life changing,” says Alice Garland, director of the NC Education Lottery. The lottery doesn't only help out those who win, by law it also gives back to education. In its first year, the lottery accounted for $62.3 for education. Last year, a $521.2 check was cut for the state. “We are the only state lottery in the country that has increased sales and return to our beneficiary – to education- every year that we've been in business,” says Garland.|
