ATLANTA – A Marietta woman is seeing green and her husband will hit the greens after a $50,000 Georgia Lottery win. Pauliner McMorris played Extreme Green and won the instant game’s $50,000 top prize.
According to Mrs. McMorris, 57, she and her husband, Nolen, plan to save and invest their winnings for their retirement. “We’re going to spend it wisely,” she shares.
Mr. McMorris adds that he intends to get in two rounds of golf at Alabama’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
Mr. and Mrs. McMorris work as communications consultants. They have two grown children and one grandson.
The winning ticket was purchased at Sprayberry Bottle Shop, located at 2692 Sandy Plains Rd. in Marietta.
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.
