Michael Hollman of Kalamazoo was the lucky winner of $250,000 after matching five white ball numbers in the March 9 Mega Millions drawing.
The first order of business for Hollman and his wife is to start a college fund for each of their two children. Then they will invest a portion into a 401K for “retired life”.
The winning ticket was sold by 7-Eleven 108B located at 3726 Mount Olivet Rd. in Parchment.
