From HBCU Buzz:
Dr. Calvin Lowe, who is Dean of the School of Science, thought he’d won the top prize, but he wasn’t certain [on Thursday.] After examining the ticket with a magnifying glass, Dr. Lowe realized the ticket really was a top prize winner…
Dr. Lowe said he told his secretary about the win and she replied, “I’m not losing you as a boss, am I?” He assured her he has no plans to quit and plans to save most of his winnings for retirement.
Lowe brought the winning ticket at 7-Eleven in Newport News. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 1,101,600, the Daily Press reports.
