RDC instructors win $30 million

Seven plumbing instructors at Red Deer College will gain much popularity over the next few years as they currently hold a lotto ticket with a big prize.

The ticket they purchased had all the right numbers for last Wednesday’s $30-million Lotto 6/49 Jackpot.

The seven instructors are currently waiting for the ticket to be verified, which could take up to a week or even longer.

Dean Wigmore, Brian Berge, Len Auction, Rob Baumbach, Ralph Hunter, Jim Pollard, and Brian Stephenson are the lucky winners and were seen last Wednesday cheerfully dancing and smiling throughout the hallways of RDC.

A representative for RDC said they will no doubt be looking for seven new plumbing instructors, but was unsure of what the winners had planned.

The instructors were said to have been smiling from ear to ear and the news spread quickly throughout the campus and that was all anyone was talking about.

They were also seen piling into a limousine last Thursday morning to head to the lottery offices in St. Albert to claim their prize.

RDC’s Jeff Maser could not comment until the ticket had been verified and the lucky winners were truly the holders of a winning ticket but he said he was happy for them.

“I cannot comment on the situation unfortunately, but if I was them I wouldn’t be coming back,” Maser said jokingly.

None of the instructors could be reached for comment at the College or at their homes Monday morning.

Between the seven each one will receive about $4.3 million. They checked out the ticket both online and in the newspaper before they left and it was said that they had all the right numbers.
