Local nursing student wins big in Cash 5 game

(Danville, Va.) — A Danville woman is $100,000 richer after buying a winning lottery ticket.

Santayshia Wilson matched all five numbers in the February 22 day drawing, winning  the grand prize in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game.

Wilson says she was in disbelief until her father checked the ticket and confirmed that she had won. Wilson says she selected the numbers on her ticket, 8-10-12-23-26, using a combination of her parents’ birthdays.

She bought the ticket at Quick N Plenty Market on the Mount Cross Road in Danville.

Wilson, who is a nursing nurse, said she plans to help her family with her winnings.
