Blythewood Rotary Club member, Dr. Cheryl Guy, recently appeared on the nationally televised game show, Jeopardy! A long-time fan of the game, Dr. Guy has been trying to become a contestant for nearly 30 years. In January 2016, she took the online test, along with 70,000 other adults. In May, she was invited to audition in Charleston, SC.  This was her third audition in the last 10 years.  Finally, in September, the call came to fly to California for a taping of the show. On January 12, 2017, her show aired and she won in an exciting Final Jeopardy to become the Jeopardy champion and return for a second show on January 13.  On the second show, despite having the lead going into finals, she missed the question and finished in 2nd place for the day.  However, it was an exciting experience and a dream come true.  Cheryl spoke to the Blythewood Club about her experience and many members of the club attended a viewing party for the Jan. 12 show. She has also been invited to speak to the Spring Valley Rotary Club  on February 9, 2017.
