UC Classics' very own Kelly Shannon-Henderson appeared as a contestant on Jeopardy! on Tuesday, September 20, 2022. After navigating a multi-stage selection process, Dr. Shannon-Henderson got the call this summer offering her a spot on the show, and traveled to Los Angeles to film. "I'd wanted to be on Jeopardy! ever since I was a kid," she said, "so it was hugely exciting and a great privilege to get the chance to do so. Being a contestant was a fantastic experience."
