Mount Pleasant woman wins $100k; plans to go back to college

COLUMBIA, SC — A Mount Pleasant woman’s lottery win is her ticket to an education.

“I started crying,” she said when she won $100,000 on a South Carolina Education Lottery scratch-off this week.

She had to explain to her young son, who was with her, that they were tears of joy, because Mommy is going back to school to be a nurse.

Two top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 Double Sided Dollar$ game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Sky Mart Patel Convenience Store in Charleston received a commission of $1,000.
