WYDOT employee wins WyoLotto giveaway
Nathan Harrison couldn’t believe he won.
When officials from the Wyoming Lottery Corporation called to congratulate him on winning their Ride of a Lifetime giveaway, the Wyoming Department of Transportation employee said he was in total disbelief.
“Actually at first I thought it was a hoax,” he said. “I forgot I had entered. My wife called back and found out it was real.”
Nathan won a 2016 Chevy Camaro, a 2016 Harley-Davidson Freewheeler trike and $3,000 in cash as the winner of WyoLotto’s Ride of a Lifetime.
Jon Clontz, CEO of WyoLotto, and Mark Macy, chairman of WyoLotto, were joined by mascots Mr. Luck and the WyoLotto Jackalope in awarding Nathan his prizes during a news conference on Monday, Dec. 5 at the Cheyenne Depot Museum.
Nathan was joined by his wife, Michelle, and children, Dylan, 17, and Kadee, 15.
During the news conference, lottery officials also announced its newest game, Lucky for Life, where the grand prize winner receives $1,000 a day for life and the second prize winner receives $25,000 a year for life.
Nathan has worked for WYDOT for the past four years as a heavy equipment operator out of Lyman. He previously served active duty in the U.S. Army for 20 years. Nathan was born in Evanston and moved to the Bridger Valley in 1984.
