ILLINOIS TEACHER CLAIMS A $100,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
An elementary school teacher from Hillsboro, Ill., is $100,000 richer after playing Powerball on Aug. 25. Kristine Hanners, 45, said she and her husband, Kenny, had a friend buy their winning ticket when he stopped at Schnucks Market, 8867 Ladue Road in St. Louis. Hanners plans to do something nice for that friend.
Hanners, who is a teacher for the Nokomis school district, said the couple plan to pay bills, make some donations and take a trip to see relatives with the winnings.
The winning number on Hanners’ ticket were selected by the computer. Those numbers were: 8, 17, 22, 42 and 47.
The Missouri Lottery has sold 557 Powerball tickets worth $100,000 since the game began in April 1992.
