Three public school employees who have been working multiple jobs are winners in the historic Mega Millions lottery. And because they are remaining anonymous, and plan to keep working, their students and co-workers may never know.
“If it can’t be you, these are precisely the people that you would want to see win the lottery,” said Stephen Martino, director of the Maryland Lottery.
The three will get $35 million each after taxes, because each chose to take the lump sum rather than an annual payment.
Three winning tickets were sold nationally in the recent drawing, which had a record $656 million pre-tax payout. One ticket was sold in Kansas, another in Illinois and the third in Maryland.
