The students and extended family of The Westminster Schools have been on the edge of their seats for the last two days, as one of their fellow students competes on national TV in the Teen Jeopardy! competition.
Nilai Sarda is a 13-year-old, ninth grade student who has supposedly spent the last two years trying to get on the TV show. This year, his dream came true, and the Marietta resident has been winning fans since his first Jeopardy appearance on Monday night.
The 13-year-old will stay on the show and be featured again on Tuesday night on the second night of the two-night finals on NBC at 7:30 p.m.
According to a report on 11Alive.com, "Tuesday night will mark Nilai's [fourth] appearance in the Teen Tournament. He finished with the most money on each of the shows Friday and Monday."
11Alive visited the Westminster School and found Nilai who is now home after the taping of the show, still keeping quiet about how far he actually went on the show and how much money he won.
I guess we have to keep watching and supporting this local Westminster star as he continues to make his class, his school, and his city proud!
