Claremore graduate chosen to compete on Jeopardy! College Championship



Farjadian said getting on “Jeopardy!” was a stroke of luck, so he would feel kind of guilty if he kept all of the money.
“I’ve had a lot of fun volunteering for KWGS, TU’s public radio station, and I love their local programming, so I’m going to give them a call during next pledge drive,” he said. “I’ve been watching OETA even longer than I’ve been watching “Jeopardy!”, so they’re also going to get a call.
Farjadian, a political science and Spanish student, is currently studying for finals. He is a member of the TU Persian Student Association and Pi Sigma Alpha, the political science honors society.
“I guess you could say I’m an honorary member of some of the organizations I was in during high school,” he said. 
“Every once in a while I come back to Claremore to help out with events for the Technology Student Association and the state championship-winning CHS Academic Team. 
Being in those groups really changed my life and I’m glad they let me stick around.”
Farjadian is son of Armand and Laura Farjadian of Claremore. 
“I’ve lived just outside Claremore my whole life. I would even have had the same address, if it hadn’t been for the county’s E911 addressing changes.”
“Jeopardy!” episode will air at 4:30 p.m. Friday on CBS.
