IOWA, (WKZO) -- A graduate student from West Michigan has won a million dollars in the Iowa State Lottery. Muskegon native Ashley Smrcina is happy she'll not have to worry about paying off her student loans. She realized she had won one-million dollars on an Iowa Lottery scratch ticket while studying at a pizza restaurant last Thursday.
She claimed her million-dollar jackpot on Friday. She says it's slowly sinking in. She became a millionaire just six months after moving to the state for school.
