Miller Co. custodian tracks $50K Fantasy 5 win

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

ATLANTA – A Fantasy 5 win from the Georgia Lottery has spurred excitement for a Miller County Schools custodian. Wilmon Kelly, who has worked for the school system 40 years, matched all five numbers from the Aug. 2 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $50,000 jackpot prize.

Kelly, who lives in Damascus, claimed his prize Monday at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Tifton.

Woodall’s #0003, 402 N. Westover Blvd. in Albany, sold the winning ticket. Kelly, 66, discovered that he’d won while at home.

“It felt pretty good,” the father of two said. “I called my son to verify it was correct. He was amazed and surprised, too.”

Kelly and his wife, Geneva, anticipate paying off bills and saving the remainder.

Winning numbers from the Aug. 2 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 3-11-18-22-36.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.6 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.4 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
