School bus driver claims winning lottery ticket

Posted on December 2, 2010

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A school bus driver from Landrum claimed a South Carolina Education Lottery Millionaire Raffle ticket worth $100,000 on Nov. 22.

The driver, who did not want her name released, said that she will use the money to support local charities and pay her children's college expenses.

Students on her bus were greeted by the driver's enthusiasm. "I'll be wearing a big smile at work today," she said before starting her shift. "I can't stop smiling."

The winner of a $1-million raffle ticket had not yet come forward.
