#WinnerWednesday: School Bus Driver Valarie T. Of Virginia Screamed When She Won $20,000

Valarie Turner of Kilmarnock, Virginia was relaxing at home and watching Let’s Make a Deal in between her summer school bus runs when Dave Sayer and Howie Guja of PCH Prize Patrol knocked on her door. Valarie screamed with excitement and her eyes popped when she saw the balloons, flowers and a giant check for $20,000 with her name on it. While holding the oversize check for a photo, she said, “It looks good on me!” Despite the temptation to buy something lavish for herself, Valarie is still a giver at heart and thought of others first. “That’s a lot of money,” she said. “I’m going to help my children. I love to give and help where I can help.” Valerie said she enters the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes daily, sometimes two or three time a day. Her advice to other potential winners out there? “I didn’t believe before, but I sure believe now,” she said. “I didn’t give up. I said, ‘It’s going to happen for me.’”
