Local High School Co-Workers Share $1.1 Million Prize

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- A group of co-workers from a local high school has won the lottery. The five co-workers at Clarksville's Rossview High School collected their $1.1 Million in winnings on Friday. They were the winners of the Tennessee Lottery's Tennessee Cash drawing that was held on Wednesday.

Their winnings were one-half of a record-breaking Tennessee Cash jackpot of $2,219,462. Another winning ticket was sold in Antioch, but the winner has not claimed the prize.

The group is made up of four cafeteria workers and the school nurse. They told lottery officials they had plans for their winnings ranging from paying bills and giving to church to tackling home repairs.

"I don't know how it feels," said Teresa Anderson when asked about her win. "I just don't know how to feel!" Other winners include Krissie Compton, Shelly Strange, Alinda Beams and a fifth who asked not to be named.
