Warner Robins Teen Wins $25K, Plans for Mercer | News
A Warner Robins teen, 19-year-old Sequoyeah Canion, had that lucky moment where he scratched off a winning lottery ticket.
He bought a Cash Deluxe ticket and found himself $25,000. With his new winnings, Canion told the Georgy Lottery that he plans to go to Mercer University to study mechanical engineering.
A press release from the Georgia Lottery said a family visit brought Canion to Perry, where he bought his winning ticket at the Perry Food Mart.
He said, "I scratched the ticket, and I was excited. Winning feels good."
Canion went to the Georgia Lottery District Office in Macon on Thursday to claim his winnings.
