What would you do if you won the lottery? Most people would be to quit their job. That is not the case for the three Mega Millions winners from Maryland. The "Three Amigos," as they like to call themselves, will continue working in public education despite the fact that they each netted about $35 million from their lucky win.

It may seem strange that these three lucky Mega Millions winners, who have chosen to remain anonymous, would continue working in the public school system, but Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino said the three have "a strong commitment to their students." What a wonderful testament to their dedication to the young people in their state!

Martino also said, "We are thrilled that three such deserving Marylanders have won this money. It’s gratifying to know that these individuals, who have given so much to the public through the years, have had this wonderful luck. It couldn’t have happened to nicer people."

The three are a man in his 50s, a woman in her 40s, and a woman in her 20s. They each have a plan in place for taking care of their fortune. Can you imagine being in their shoes? What an exciting couple of weeks this must have been for them!
