Edwards Student Wins $5,000 Powerball Prize
A student at State Fair Community College in Sedalia has an extra $5,000 for the holiday season after playing Powerball on Dec. 15. Marsha Newell, 44, of Edwards said she planned to use her prize winnings to pay some bills, give some to her two kids and her parents, and use some for Christmas expenses.
Newell said she selected the winning numbers herself at random. They were: 6, 11, 38, 53 and the Powerball was 11. She bought her winning ticket at R-Corner in Warsaw.
"I only buy tickets now and then, and that day I bought $7 worth," she said. "I had a whim."
