Scripps Colleges Hannah Shoenhard 14 has won $ 10,000 and a spot in the semifinals of the college championship edition of Jeopardy! She appears again on the trivia TV show May 13.
Ive been a fan of Jeopardy! since I was a kid. My dad and I would always watch it together. When I saw they were having auditions, I thought Id try out for it, but I never thought Id actually be on it, said Shoenhard, a junior majoring in neuroscience and philosophy. The fact that I am just blows my mind.
In addition, Shoenhard was one of 272 U.S. undergraduate sophomores and juniors to recently receive a scholarship from the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation for academic excellence in science and math. She aspires to earn a doctorate degree in neuroscience. Shoenhard would like to conduct research in cellular neuroscience and teach at a university.
Shoenhard competes against other Jeopardy! contestants from such campuses as Tufts, Wellesley and MIT. She had previously appeared on the TV show May 6 and won her first round. The next pre-filmed episode is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. May 13 on KABC-TV channel 7. For more information, please visit http://www.jeopardy.com/showguide/whentowatch/.
