HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - A group of 38 southwest Ohio school workers who have been playing the lottery for a decade are celebrating a $1 million win in the multistate Powerball game.

Ross Local Schools Superintendent Greg Young tells the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News (https://bit.ly/1zRwTDy ) the group includes teachers, administrators, secretaries, custodians, cooks and paraprofessionals. They matched five numbers but missed the Powerball for the Oct. 18 drawing.

After taxes, each person will get an estimated $18,000.

Young is among them. He says the payout isn’t huge “by lottery standards” but will make a difference in the winners’ lives.

Another winner, middle school principal Chris Saylor, says the group was shocked. He says people have suggested they’ll use the money to buy a vehicle, pay bills and add to a college fund.
