Life is going to be more comfortable for Georgia Tech sophomore Quincy Howard after he won a brand-new Mini Cooper as well as $35,750 on “Wheel of Fortune” on Monday night. According to WRDW, Howard took home the winnings after he came up tops on the popular television game show’s currently running “college week” series.
Howard’s puzzle category during the final round was “People.” And the college student managed to get the correct answer – which was “Kids at play” – in the space of 10 seconds. After getting the answer right, Howard reacted with amazement when Pat Sajak revealed his prize – a Mini Cooper.
Howard won $69,600 in total. “Way to go Quincy!!! You cleaned up at Wheel of Fortune! You continue to make the Green and Gold beam with Irish Pride!” Howard’s former high school system, Dublin City schools, shared on Facebook.
Howard’s winnings would probably not come as a surprise to those who know him as his school system also said he was the Class of 2021 valedictorian, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.
