'It hasn't sunk in yet!'

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Paying off student loans just got much easier for a business student at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Jeff Walker recently claimed the $100,000 second-place prize in Virginia Lottery’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle.

Walker discovered the good news while texting with a friend after both realized they had missed out on the $1 million top prize. It was then Walker realized he was still a winner.

“It feels weird,” Walker, of Midlothian, told lottery officials. “It hasn’t sunk in yet!”

Walker bought his winning ticket at the Food Lion located at 1100 Courthouse Road.

He plans to pay off his student loans and invest the rest of his winnings.
