One hundred ten employees at Elmont Memorial High School will share a $1 million Powerball prize, won last Wednesday through the New York Lottery. The group includes teachers, secretaries, janitors and administrative workers.

Each employee will be taking home about $4,000.

The $1 million ticket was bought Saturday at the 7-Eleven at 850 Hempstead Tpke. in Franklin Square, according to New York Lottery officials. The Elmont Memorial group matched five of six numbers — 1, 10, 37, 52, 57 — each number but the Powerball, 11.

The winning ticket for the $336 million Powerball jackpot was sold in Rhode Island and matched all five numbers and the Powerball.

There were 11 winners nationwide, including the Elmont Memorial faculty members. Another $1 million Powerball ticket was sold at the Fresh Mart grocery and produce store at 40-38 Union St. in Flushing, Queens.

According to New York Lottery spokeswoman Christy Calicchia, the winners will be publicly introduced sometime in the next few weeks.
