MONTGOMERY, AL – Governor Bob Riley on Tuesday announced he has appointed two Alabamians to serve on the new board overseeing the state's prepaid tuition program, including a woman who helped start the grassroots movement to save the program. 

Governor Riley has appointed Patti Lambert of Decatur, the co-founder of the group "Save Alabama PACT," and Dowd Ritter, the former chairman and CEO of Regions Bank. 

The Legislature voted to create a new board to oversee PACT in April.  The Governor gets to make two appointments to the 15-member board. 

"These new board members are solidly dedicated to protecting PACT and making sure the state lives up to its commitment to PACT families," said Governor Riley.
