ATLANTA- Currently Lewis Holman’s wife Shawn is using a HOPE scholarship at Brenau University to study to become a teacher. Already benefiting from the Georgia Lottery, the family received even more on July 19 when Mr. Holman won $50,000 playing $100 Million Cash Spectacular, an instant game.
After finding out that he was a winner by scratching the ticket in the store where he purchased it, the Lawrenceville resident was too excited to keep the good news to himself. “I hugged everybody in the store,” Mr. Holman says.
The collision center owner plans to use part of his winnings to treat his four children to something special. Afterwards, Mr. Holman plans to save the rest.
Mr. Holman purchased his winning ticket at St. Thomas Quick Corner, located at 419 Buford Dr. in Lawrenceville.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.6 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
