Record Powerball winner offers to fix Maine high school's roof

An 84-year-old Florida woman who won a record $590.5 million Powerball jackpot has offered $2 million to repair the roof of a high school in her Maine hometown.

Quenten Clark, superintendent of Maine's East Millinocket School District, said family members of Gloria MacKenzie, who claimed her $370.9 million lump sum -- $278 million after taxes -- June 5, visited his office Tuesday to say the Florida woman was planning to donate $2 million to fix the roof at Schenck High School, the Bangor (Maine) Daily News reported Wednesday.

"They want their privacy respected so I don't think they will have any comment publicly," Clark said.

MacKenzie's son, Larry MacKenzie, is a former East Millinocket selectman and her daughter, Mindy, teaches biology at Schenck High.

MacKenzie's relatives could not be reached for comment, the Daily News said.
