A couple from Bethel, Minnesota, who bagged the US Hot Lotto Jackpot on September 6, 2014, has decided to share a little of their good luck with the 18-year-old store clerk who sold them their winning ticket.
Joe and Rhonda Meath claimed their $11.7 million prize on Monday and, as a "thank you", gave $15,000 to high school senior, Sanita Rouse, to put in her college fund.
When Rouse was called into work, for a meeting with her employer, she feared she may be about to get fired. She got the surprise of her life when she learned the real reason she'd been called in.
"I couldn't be more grateful," Rouse said. "It's crazy! It's overwhelming! It's a blessing, it really is."
