Jeopardy! champion visits Forsythe KMO Club

Stephanie Jass at Forysthe KMO Club

The Forsythe KMO Club, which recently won their second consecutive state championship in the Knowledge Master Open, had a visit from a celebrity on Dec. 11. Stephanie Jass, the all-time women’s champion of the quiz show Jeopardy!, attended the club meeting, answered questions, signed autographs, learned KMO from the students, and participated in a short KMO contest vs. the students.

Dr. Jass is a history professor at Adrian College and she lives in Milan. She won seven consecutive Jeopardy games this fall, earning about $150,000.  She is preparing for the Jeopardy Tournament of Champions early in 2013. She is a friend and colleague of Debbie Field, mother of KMO team member Jacob Schneyer. Debbie arranged Stephanie’s visit.
