#powerball Kentucky Powerball Winner College Bound

February 22nd, 2017

A Kentucky woman claimed a $1 million prize from the February 1st Powerball drawing.

Tanya Herrera, 18, won by matching all five white balls on her ticket. According to the Kentucky Lottery, Herrera doesn't have much experience playing the lottery so she asked her dad for help. He suggested she go to the store where she bought the ticket to check it.

"I really didn't know what to do," said Herrera. "I scanned it myself and when I saw $1 million pop up on the machine, I thought it was broken."

Herrera says she will use some of her winnings towards college tuition, and is considering attending Western Kentucky University.
