Dallas native Monica Thieu, an 18-year-old psychology sophomore at the University of North Texas, became the youngest winner ever of the “Jeopardy” college championship this week. She also happens to be a Hockaday School 2010 alumna.

Thieu won $100,000 and a guaranteed spot in the show’s next Tournament of Champions. Check out this interview with her from the show.

Thieu attends the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science at UNT. The “Jeopardy” college championship began early this month with 15 contestants whittled down from about 12,000 across the country. And one of Hockaday’s own beat them all.
