Local Girl on Jeopardy

By  | 

A local high school student took the ultimate challenge, as she brought her knowledge to the game show Jeopardy.

Sixteen-year-old Shuyu Wang will appear on Jeopardy Teen Tournament on Thursday night and next Tuesday night. The Okemos High School junior competes for the Chieftains quiz bowl team.

She credits her work there for preparing her for the show and says she read many journals and quiz show books to gear up for her big debut.

Wang flew out to Los Angeles on Dec. 14 to tape the show. Wang has a great love for chemistry and science and eventually would like to end up at Harvard or MIT.
