ATLANTA – An Alpharetta automobile painter is primed after winning the top prize on a Georgia Lottery instant game. Jack Sherrill, 51, played Giant Jumbo Bucks and won $150,000.
The lucky ticket was purchased at AM-PM Food Mart (Phillips 66), located in Chamblee at 4400 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd.
“I was already in the process of buying a town home. I’ll just put more money down on it,” shares Mr. Sherrill. He also plans to pay off his Jeep, buy a new motorcycle, and put some of his winnings towards his five-year-old daughter’s college fund.
According to Mr. Sherrill, his daughter, Jacquelynn, attended lottery-funded prekindergarten last school year. “I was really happy with the Georgia Lottery-funded pre-k. It worked out really well,” says Mr. Sherrill. “It’s a good program. Excellent!”
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7 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.
