One of the winners of the biggest PowerBall jackpot ever is an Iowa Native. 47-year-old Michael Terpstra appeared with 7 co-workers today at a press conference in Lincoln, Nebraska, to tell what it’s like to learn they’re sharing 365-Million dollars.
He says he was born in Iowa, grew up in York, Nebraska, and moved to Lincoln in 1976. Terpstra is one of 8 workers at Lincoln’s ConAgra ham-packing plant in Lincoln, a group that’s been chipping in to buy the lottery tickets for about five years now. Each will take a lump sum of about fifteen and-a-half Million dollars and Terpstra says he’ll be quitting that job.
