BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland Lottery officials say three public school employees are sharing the spoils of the record Mega Millions jackpot.

The winning Maryland ticket is one of three nationally that split the $656 million jackpot.

Maryland Lottery director Stephen Martino told a news conference in Baltimore the winners there were remaining anonymous. But he did provide a few details, including that they bought 60 tickets as a pool.

The two women and one man work in public education in the state. Officials did not disclose where.

One is a special education teacher, one is an elementary school teacher and the third is a school administrator.

Each will receive a lump sum payment of $35 million after taxes. Their plans include backpacking in Europe and paying for a daughter's college education.
