Kelly: Hey again!
Here’s a little collage of the visit today.
I started my morning in snowy Springfield, MO on the KY3 and the KSPR morning news. Thanks to KSPR’s Adam Hooper for the Mardi Gras spirit to kick off the day!
I had the chance to play Classroom Jeopardy! with over a hundred 7th graders at John J. Pershing Middle School today. Jeopardy! partnered with KSPR & The Rotary Club of Southeast Springfield and it was a pleasure to take part in the “Don’t Meth With Us” drug education program! Thank you to all the volunteers and community leaders for making such an important difference in these kids’ lives!

Thank you to Tallahassee’s WCTV Art Myers & Shonda Knight for having me on their morning show today. The weather is still pretty frigid here, but it seems warmer temps are on the way!
Another huge thanks goes to Principal Thomas and Ms. Marshall’s 7th grade Social Studies students for having me today. Although they started out a little shy, I had no doubt that their competitive energy would shine soon enough! Boy, was I right! With a close game and an ever-changing lead, Team ATTORNEYS pulled out the win over Team JURY and Team JUDGE! Great kids make for an awesome event, and that’s exactly what we had today! Thank you to WCTV and the Tallahassee Democrat for coming out to cover all the fun.
The kids put this little cheer together to celebrate their new Classroom Jeopardy! unit.
Alonso High gave us an extra warm welcome and showed us some love on the school sign! I was touched by their enthusiasm for our visit today, as I’m sure our friends, Kathryn Bursch and Angela Cooney from WTSP-TV 10News, were too.
Geneva is located in the westernmost corner of Switzerland. It was a lovely place to visit. Rich in history and politics, I was also pleased to be surrounded by beautiful views, clean, fresh air and the sounds of the French language! Geneva is bordered by the Jura Mountains in the west and the French Alps in the east, so it seems everywhere you look, the city is set upon a backdrop of beautiful mountains (snowcapped when we were there).
Welcome to the Palace of Nations/Palais des Nations! It was an honor to be one of the annual 100,000 visitors to the United Nations and to have the opportunity to shoot clues there. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Geneva.

Hey Jeopardy! fans, make sure to tune in today to take a step back in time with Kelly and me as we visit historic Valley Forge.
Located approximately 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia, PA, Valley Forge is named for an iron forge on Valley Creek. It was the site of the 1777-78 winter encampment of the Continental Army under General George Washington. The park commemorates the sacrifices and perseverance of the Revolutionary War soldiers and honors the ability of the citizens to pull together and overcome adversity during extraordinary times. It is truly a patriotic place and we would like to thank everyone at Valley Forge for our access and making this a very memorable experience.
What you don’t normally see on TV… this is our great crew at work! Pictured left to right: Russ Fisher (Audio) — who is originally from Philly and it was great for him to be back home. His brother even joined up with us at the end of the day J — Producer Brett Schneider, Josh Schneiderman (Grip), and Chris Smith (Photographer).
Here’s Kelly braving the tall brush of Valley Forge. Afterward, we were told by the Park Ranger that there’s always the chance for picking up ticks… yikes! After further review, I am happy to report that Kelly came up clean!
