*A North Carolina teacher who was laid off months ago won the $250,000 jackpot after he bought the winning ticket from a local gas station.
Joe Camp worked as a preschool teacher for 20 years but was laid off in September and his father passed away several weeks later. Currently, he works as an employee at a local car dealership in Charlotte. Camp purchased two lottery tickets at his local gas station and was surprised when he hit the jackpot on Christmas Day.
“Thursday morning, I went to the store and bought a scratch-off ticket like I usually do, And I bought two tickets. I didn’t win on the first one, so I tried the second and I scratched it off, and I fell to my knees at the gas pump.”
