Three Maryland public school workers have claimed their share of this month's record-breaking Mega Millions lottery jackpot.
"If it can't be you, these people are precisely the people you would want to see win," Maryland Lottery director Stephen Martino said.
The winners chose to remain anonymous and only call themselves "The Three Amigos."
One is a special education teacher, another is an elementary school teacher, and the third is a school administrator.
Martino said all three winners plan to continue to work, noting a commitment to their students.
Their winning ticket was one of 60 the group bought together. Each will take home just under $35 million after taxes.
Two other winning tickets were sold for the mega millions jackpot. One winner in Kansas has come forward.
The third ticket was sold in Illinois but that winner has yet to claim the prize.
