Former teacher wins on show
In an episode that aired nationally last week, a former Kenston Forest teacher was a winner on the television game show, “Jeopardy!”
David Gatewood came from behind, prevailing in Final Jeopardy and winning $21,600. The episode was filmed last December and was broadcast last Thursday.
Gatewood, a Literature Ph. D. student at the University of Tennessee, taught Dual Enrollment English and regular English at Kenston during the spring semester of 2013. He lived in a cottage at John & Frannie Schwabenton’s Oakwood farm near Blackstone during that time.
Gatewood was in third place with $3,400 heading into Double Jeopardy, then made a strong run in the “Comma Sympathizers” category and briefly held the lead.
