L-P Grad Wins Big On Jeopardy!

Posted by wlpo on January 20, 2012

A longtime dream became reality yesterday for an L-P graduate.  Class of ’77 Lynn Hammerlund appeared on the Jeopardy! Game show and won it.

Hammerlund got the final Jeopardy question of Wrigley Field right and took home over 22 thousand dollars, beating the next closest competitor by over nine thousand dollars.  She was in the lead from the start of the show thanks to two daily doubles and sweeping the category of Foreign.

Hammerlund is a 1977 graduate of L-P.  Back then she was Lynn Masterson.

She now lives in the suburb of Lake in the Hills.  Hammerlund is an associate professor at Judson University.
