Winston-Salem teacher first vaccine millionaire winner
RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) - A Winston-Salem teacher and mother of three is the first winner of the state’s vaccine millionaire lottery.
The first two winners of the Summer Cash Drawing and Summer Cash 4 College Drawing were announced Monday morning.
Shelly Wyramon said at first she thought the call from state health officials was a hoax and didn’t believe it until she spoke with DHHS Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen.
Vania Martinex, a 14-year-old from Wilmington, won the first $125,000 college scholarship prize for those under 18.
The drawings are part of the state’s “Bringing Summer Back,” campaign to encourage North Carolinians to get vaccinated.
Winners for the $4 Million Summer Cash and Summer Cash 4 College Drawings will be drawn every other Wednesday through Aug. 4, DHHS said.
