Knox Co. Powerball Winner to Share Winnings
A Knox County woman who won one-million dollars in Wednesday’s Powerball game plans to share her winnings with her children.
Pat Wilkerson of Bruceville matched all the numbers, except for the Powerball number.
She purchased her ticket at United PSM at 6th Street and Old Wheatland Road in Vincennes.
She elected to share her winnings with her daughter, Michelle Cummins, and her son, Sean Wilkerson, both of Vincennes.
Each party received approximately $333,333 before taxes.
Wilkerson is retired from the National Park Service.
Both Cummins and Sean Wilkerson work for Vincennes University where Cummins is a math professor and Sean Wilkerson is the IT Director.
As for their winnings, Cummins plans to use her portion for her two daughters' college educations.
Sean Wilkerson said it's too soon for him to have any idea what he'll do with his portion.
With three children under 10 he'll have no shortage of ways to spend it.
