One of Florida A&M College of Law’s employees from the downtown Orlando campus fulfilled her dream of being a “Jeopardy!” contestant after she grew up watching the popular quiz show, according to a press release.
The release stated that Lorelle Anderson, FAMU Law’s assistant director for public library services, is from Longwood and has been employed with FAMU for 12 years. She said her mother was the one who really wanted her to do it.
“My family members are all proud that I was able to get up there and hold my own with some of the smartest people in the country,” Anderson said.
According to the release, Anderson’s favorite subjects are legal research, legislative history, Shakespeare and the Bible.
“My dream came true when I got the call to appear on Jeopardy,” Anderson said. “I love to read! Losing myself in a good story is one of the best things in life, and it’s a great way to learn new things without actually studying. I always have at least one book going, and as soon as I finish one, I start a new one.”
Anderson’s co-workers hosted a watch party when her episode premiered on April 17.
