Macon County mother of 3 wins $28K

Thursday, January 24, 2013

ATLANTA – A Macon County mother of three has won a stellar prize from the Georgia Lottery. Teporschne James of Montezuma is jumping for joy since winning a $28,888 top prize playing the instant game White Ice 8’s.

James, 33, claimed her prize Tuesday at the Georgia Lottery’s District Office in Macon.

Barkers Market, 432 Spaulding Road in Montezuma, sold the winning ticket. She scratched her winning ticket in the parking lot while in her car.

“I called my husband. I always joke with him, so he couldn’t believe it,” she said.

An Albany State University sophomore, James will celebrate a birthday in February.

“This is a birthday present, and I feel great,” she exclaimed.

The lucky winner and her husband, Mark, plan to use a portion of the windfall toward their children and for home improvements.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14 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.
