Environmental engineer the first LSU student in Jeopardy! tournament
BATON ROUGE - An LSU environmental engineering senior will be the university's first student to appear in the "Jeopardy!" College Championship Tournament this week.
Kevin Brown is a Boise, Idaho native and a 2012 Flagship Scholar recipient. He and 14 other students will compete for a grand prize of $100,000 in the tournament, which airs from Feb. 1-12 on WBRZ.
Brown said appearing on the show was a much more intense and "significant" experience than he originally expected it to be.
"I hope that my appearance will inspire more students to go for it," Brown said.
Brown's appearance in the quarterfinals will be broadcast Feb. 2 at 4:30 p.m. CT on WBRZ. For more information on Brown and the other students competing in the tournament, click here.
