Macon woman wins $1 million in lottery


Shelia Dawson, 60, is $1 million richer.

She matched the first five numbers in Wednesday's Powerball drawing. She purchased the ticket from Discount Tobacco on Bloomfield Road.

The numbers were 1-17-35-49-54 and the Powerball number was 34.

"I thought I was dreaming at first," Dawson, 60, stated in a Georgia Lottery news release. "Surprisingly, I'm really calm," the maintenance technician stated. "I guess it just hasn't sunk in yet."

A mother of four, Dawson said she'll use the winnings to help her family. She also plans to purchase a new home.
