Loyola Student Wins $14,400 on Jeopardy! and Continues Tonight

Loyola announcement - January 11, 2006

(New Orleans) — Loyola University New Orleans Junior Kevin Marshall will re-appear on the television game show Jeopardy! on Wednesday, January 11 due to his outstanding $14,400 win yesterday evening. He will appear tonight at 6 p.m. on WVUE-TV Channel 8.

Marshall is a junior majoring in classical studies, and he is a native of Metairie, Louisiana. He took the qualifying test for Jeopardy! in Atlanta in February 2005. While attending College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts for the 2005 fall semester, Jeopardy! called Marshall in October to be a contestant.

“It was nerve-racking but fun. I don’t think you can really expect what’s going to happen,” says Marshall about his experiences when participating in the game show. Marshall has returned to New Orleans to complete his degree at Loyola.
