La Fleur’s Magazine’s new series—Quote of the Week—features interviews with lottery directors about what’s ahead for their organizations in fiscal 2022. We will feature a different director each week. This week we are spotlighting Brian Rockey, Director, Nebraska Lottery.
What’s ahead for your lottery in FY22?
“We plan to add Double Play for Powerball in the summer and will begin the celebration of our 30th Anniversary in the early fall with a special $30 instant game.”
What book are you currently reading?
“I don’t read as much as a once did (I blame bifocals for that). However, I did just start ‘As One With Authority’ by Jackson W. Carroll. Our senior pastor referenced it during a recent message on taking personal responsibility for our actions rather than citing an imparted sense of authority as an excuse.”
Where do you plan to vacation in the next six months?
“We hope to make a European river cruise with college friends in June, rescheduled from 2020. If that can’t happen, there’s an alternate plan for New England.”
“As challenging as things are, I think we can be proud of our collective resourcefulness and inspired by the energy and innovation we generate by working smarter and adapting more readily.”
