CHESAPEAKE, Va. - A school bus driver from Chesapeake and the Virginia Lottery have one thing in common - they both work to help school children. Now, they have another thing in common.

Vivian Vaughan is retired, but she still drives a school bus. The Virginia Lottery raises funds for K-12 public education.

Vaughan played the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game and matched all five numbers to win the $100,000 top prize.

It happened in the June 15 night drawing, with a ticket she bought at the 7-Eleven at 2200 South Military Highway in Chesapeake.

“It hasn’t hit me yet,” she told Virginia Lottery officials when she claimed her prize. “I’m not even thinking!”

She selected her five numbers, 4-8-10-13-17, using family birthdays.

Cash 5 drawings are held daily at 1:59 p.m. and 11 p.m. The odds of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 278,256.
