School to receive new track thanks to janitor

March 14, 2011

BURIEN, WA — Tyrone Curry is a busy man: At 60 years old he works three jobs as the janitor at Evergreen High School in Burien, a seating host at Safeco Field and an assistant lead usher at the Seattle Center, according to The Federal Way News.

In addition, he coaches track and boys and girls basketball at Evergreen, the article noted.

One more thing about Tyrone Curry: He is a millionaire, courtesy of winning $3.4 million off a $2 ticket in the state of Washington''s Quinto lottery in June of 2006, the article stated.

According to the article, instead of purchasing vacation properties at far flung destinations and moving in next door to Microsoft execs, Curry has kept his life much as it was before the big win.

"I''m still working all four jobs, still coaching … the biggest thing was our financial people said, ''Go out and buy something,'' so we bought two new cars and we know we can quit work whenever, but I still like working and I still like doing what I’m doing," Curry said.

His latest investment is a $40,000 donation for Evergreen to resurface their running track and put in a new high jump pit, pole vault pit and throwing area for shot, discus and javelin, the article added.
