Springfield educator falls short of Jeopardy win

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – A Springfield educator took his shot at a Jeopardy victory Monday night.  Friends, family and co-workers of Jonathan Kuehnle all watched anxiously at Springfield High School Monday night where Kuehnle serves as campus director.

Kuehnle was there too. The episode was filmed in December.

He says it was a great experience.

“You had to be on your toes and in Jeopardy, you either know it or you don’t and you really have to know what you’re talking about, you can’t fake it. You can’t fake it, you can’t cheat, nothing. You just have to know it cold.”

Kuehnle didn’t win, but he did set goals before appearing on the show like win enough money to cover his travel expenses, make it to the final Jeopardy round and get a daily double. All of which, he achieved.
