Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky teen will use some of her $1 million Powerball winnings to pay for college.

Tanya Herrera, 18, bought the winning ticket for Wednesday night's drawing, while visiting her father in Somerset, Kentucky.

She matched all five numbers, but not the Powerball. Still, she won a $1 million prize.

Herrera says she's thinking about attending Western Kentucky University and using the money to pay the tuition.
