Houston County high school teacher tracks $100K

Friday, September 7, 2012

ATLANTA – One Houston County high school teacher is soaring with excitement since winning a prize from the Georgia Lottery. Hope Fordham of Macon won a $100,000 top prize playing the instant game Big Bucks.

“There are no words to describe it,” said Fordham, 41.

She claimed her prize recently at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Macon.

Quick Mart, 700 N. Davis Drive in Warner Robins, sold the winning ticket.

Fordham said she purchased it after work.

“I was crying,” she recalled.

The mother of two said she plans to pay off bills with her win.

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.
