A junior from Oberlin College...

Kendra Pettis

What are you most excited about today?
I'm just most excited about being back. It was a--a very big surprise to come back and be asked to be on it again.

How did you react when you found out about the Kids Week Reunion?
I was really surprised, mostly because my friend had just tried out for the college tournament, and so it was kind of, um, a big surprise to also have something to do with it again.

What are some of your other favorite activities?
Um, I collect a lot of comic books. Uh, I read a lot at school. Um, I'm part of the musical theater association. Um, I do a lot of stage and tech stuff.

How did being on Jeopardy! at such a young age affect your life?
Um, well, I was one of my only friends to actually have a computer when I was little. Um, a lot of my friends thought I was pretty cool. Um, it was something really good to put on résumés and stuff.
