Last week on October 23rd, The winning ticket for the record breaking $1.6 Billion Mega Millions lottery was sold in South Carolina. That got everyone thinking; Now that this lucky individual became a billionaire overnight, what would you have done with all that money if you had been the big winner?

We asked around and here are a few Highland Students responses to the pressing question:

“I would take care of my family, and buy a house. Like a big mansion.” –Kyle Carter (10)

“I would go on a super nice vacation.” –Britney Estrada (11)

I would save some of it, but spend most on video games. Oh and also V-Bucks. Can’t forget those.” –Adam Karatta (10)

I would retire.” (laughs) “But no I would make all of my close friends and family millionaires.” –Kim Steinke

With answers ranging from personal satisfaction to extreme generosity, everyone has their own dreams they would fulfill if they won and struck it rich. So with all that being said, what would you do with your winnings?
