College student wins Cadillac from Ga. Lottery

ATLANTA -- An Atlanta-area college's student impending graduation just got a lot sweeter, thanks to his recent Georgia Lottery win.

Agape Shacor won a 2012 Cadillac SRX Crossover by playing the instant game Cadillac Riches. He joins Patricia Wooten of Alma, Ga. and Hans Deneergaard of Gainesville in receiving a new ride from Heritage Cadillac in Morrow.

"It's great! I'm glad it happened!" said Shacor, who will turn 23 next month.

This is the second time the young Austell resident has been touched by the Georgia Lottery. Shacor is a recipient of the HOPE Scholarship, which helped him pursue an associate's degree in computer science from Atlanta Technical College. He will graduate in May.

He bought his lucky ticket at the QuikTrip on Mableton Parkway during the Mega Millions frenzy.

"Everyone was in the gas station buying Mega Millions tickets, and my mom, aunt and I decided to play Cadillac Riches," he said. "We went to the car and scratched it off. Everyone was really excited."
