Norman and DeAnna Shue
December 31, 2003
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Today marked another important day in the history of the South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL). Norman Shue, 33, and his wife, DeAnna, 29, walked into the Columbia Claims Center with one of two winning Powerball® tickets worth $110.75 million dollars each!
The Shues, residents of Concord, NC, are the second South Carolina Powerball
Norman, who likes to be called ‘Norm’, was traveling through South Carolina on New Year’s Eve and decided to play for the big jackpot. He purchased $20 in Powerball® quick picks at Clover Shop & Save in Clover.
“The first ticket that printed was the winner,” said Norm. “And just think, the guys at work said I was wasting my money.”
The Shues did not watch the Powerball® drawing on New Year’s Eve. It wasn’t until New Year’s Day when Norm decided to check the numbers on the SCEL’s website. Once he realized an all points bulletin for the winner was released to the media, reality began to set in.
“When I heard them announce the name of the store, that’s when
I knew it had to be true,” Norm said. “It’s so overwhelming,
I can’t believe it’s real.”
