Monticello father-of-three hits $100,000

Steven Bonnell of Monticello walked into the plastics factory where he works with a big secret Monday morning.  The maintenance man had just purchased a winning Hoosier Lottery ticket worth $100,000 on his way to work. 

“I was shaking so bad and so nervous,” said Steven.  “One of the guys finally said ‘What’s wrong with you? You’re making us nervous. You’re trembling.’”

At that point Steven couldn’t keep his secret any longer.  He blurted out, “I just won $100,000!”

His co-workers immediately cheered and congratulated him. They were thrilled for him - and urged him to take the day off to celebrate, but Stevenl refused.  He put in his eight hours, although he admits it was hard to concentrate.

“This made my day, made my Christmas and made my kids’ Christmas!” said Steven. Read more about Steven's big win here.
