CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia Tourism Commissioner Betty Carver is retiring after a 37-year career working for the state.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says in a news release the Belle native's retirement is effective May 31.

She filled a variety of tourism positions with the state, including bureau chief, deputy commissioner and community relations director.

She also worked as director of scheduling and advance for former Gov. Gaston Caperton, special assistant to the attorney general and appointments coordinator for former Gov. Jay Rockefeller, now a U.S. senator.
