Westwood High School principal Dr. Cheryl Guy told Capital Rotarians that she achieved a 30-year dream when she appeared as a contestant on the game show “Jeopardy” earlier this year.  Guy, the club’s guest speaker Dec. 20, started her “Jeopardy” quest in 1986.  A successful audition in Charleston – her fourth try over the years – resulted in a trip to Culver City, CA for videotaping in September 2016.  Her “Jeopardy” episode aired in January 2017.  She was the top winner that day with a prize of $20,600, but lost to another contestant in a subsequent appearance.  Her total winnings were $22,600.  Guy noted that the daily syndicated “Jeopardy” is TV’s top quiz show, attracting 23 million viewers a week and winning a record 33 daytime Emmy Awards.  Since its premier in September 1984, the program has been hosted by Alex Trebek (in photo with Dr. Guy).  Guy, a 1984 University of South Carolina graduate, worked at Camden High and at Spring Valley High before moving to Westwood when it opened in 2012.  (Photo courtesy Jeopardy)
