Update: M-A vice principal on 'Jeopardy'

 

Sean Priest, the administrative vice principal at Menlo-Atherton High School in Atherton, appeared on the TV game show "Jeopardy" on Wednesday night, Feb. 9.

Here's the story from M-A Bear News, the school's news website.

Sue Kayton of Menlo Park, who is chairman of the M-A PTA computer donation program and a parent of M-A alumni, sent us this e-mail message:

"Just watched the show. I was on Jeopardy many years ago and want to make sure you know this: For 90% of the questions, all 3 contestants always know the answer and it's just a hand-eye coordination contest to see who can hit the buzzer at exactly the right time. Sean knew as many answers as the other two guys, perhaps more. But he wasn't quick enough on the buzzer to win."

Tonight, the winner "champion" won for the third or fourth time, and is north of $50K. This MA teacher was okay but wasn't "on fire".
