Three Anonymous Mega Millions Winners Announced In Maryland

Three public school employees are sharing a portion of the record $656 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot, according to the Associated Press. 

The winners, each of whom will receive $35 million after taxes, wish to remain anonymous, Maryland lottery officials said during a press conference today. The two women and one man bought 60 tickets as a pool, purchasing them at a Baltimore County convenience store.

One is a special education teacher, one is an elementary school teacher and the third is a school administrator, according to AP. They have dreams of backpacking in Europe and paying for one child's college education, according to AP.

All three plan to buy homes, according to NBC Washington. They all plan to remain working in the Maryland Public School system.

The local winning ticket received national attention after the March 31 drawing when a Maryland woman claimed to have the winning ticket but later said she lost it.
