Geosciences professor hits jackpot

Arizona Daily Wildcat

While professor's salaries across the nation barely keep up with inflation, one faculty member at the UA is getting an extra $7.3 million from the state.

Geosciences professor Ed McCullough will be making $242,360 a year for the next 20 years and that's after taxes.

He was the only person to match all six numbers in the Arizona Lottery's LOTTO drawing Wednesday.

McCullough bought his ticket from the Circle K store at 1610 E. Sixth St, just across from Arizona Stadium.

He would not comment on his winnings.

Wednesday's winning numbers were 1, 8, 23, 30, 35 and 37.
