Iowa Lottery releases names of "Shipping 20" Powerball winners


Iowa Lottery officials released the names of the "Shipping 20" Powerball winners Friday. 

The 20 Quaker Oats employees had the winning ticket for the $241 million Powerball drawing on June 13th. Most of the winners appeared at lottery headquarters in June to claim the prize and took part in a news conference that day. The winners gave only their first names, and said they would file suit to stop the lottery from releasing their full names to protect their identities.

State law requires the Lottery to identify winners. Lottery officials set Friday as the deadline for the group to file suit or have their names released. 

"It is our understanding that The Shipping 20 Trust has not filed a petition for an injunction," Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich said in a statement. "Historically, the lottery has treated the names of its prize winners as public information and we are doing so in this instance as well."

The names of the "Shipping 20" are:

Tommy Campbell Sr. of Cedar Rapids
Daniel Cantonwine of Vinton
William Carnahan of Cedar Rapids 
Kenneth Cole of Fairfax
Robert Havlik of Toddville
Timothy Himmelsbach of Marion
Mike Hughes of Cedar Rapids
Denise Hunt of Cedar Rapids
Carol Kremer of Central City
Terry Koopman of Cedar Rapids
Allen Miller of Shellsburg
David Morgan of Cedar Rapids
Kelly Mulford of Marion
Larry Nielsen of Walker
Brent Novak of Shellsburg
Jason Rauch of Ryan
Charles Shedek of Cedar Rapids
Gregory Stearns of Cedar Rapids
Rodney Tierney of Cedar Rapids
John Wharton of Keystone
