Dalton door frame inspector wins festive $1M prize

Thursday, November 29, 2012

ATLANTA – The holidays are in full swing for one Dalton man since winning a sizeable prize from the Georgia Lottery. Charles Shaw, a door frame inspector for a local car manufacturer, won a $1 million prize playing the instant game 50X The Money.

Kankus Express #0101, 2958 Cleveland Highway in Dalton, sold the lucky ticket.

“I went in and got a Coke and a ticket,” said Shaw, 52. “I scratched it in the truck.”

Shaw, who has no immediate plans, said that his win seems unbelievable.

“I’m pretty calm. I don’t think it has sunk in yet,” he shared.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.8 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 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
