FAMU LAW LIBRARIAN BECOMES JEOPARDY CONTESTANT

ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law is celebrating an employee who traveled to Hollywood to participate on the Jeopardy television show. Lorelle Anderson, FAMU Law’s assistant director for public library services is from Longwood, Florida and grew up watching the popular quiz show.

 

“My dream came true when I got the call to appear on Jeopardy,” said Lorelle Anderson, who has been employed by FAMU Law for twelve years. “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 has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Atlantic Union College, a Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center, Masters in Library Sciences from the University of Maryland College of Library and Information Services. Her favorite subjects are legal research, legislative history, Shakespeare and the Bible.

 

Anderson adds, “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. My mother is the one who really wanted me to do this, and she is so happy I made it!”

 

Anderson’s co-workers are proud of her, too. They are hosting a Jeopardy Watch Party where staff will watch the Jeopardy program with Anderson. The Jeopardy program featuring Anderson is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. on April 17 on WFTV 9.
