2019 Alum Appears on Jeopardy!

Beavercreek High School 2019 graduate Hari Parameswaran is set to compete on Jeopardy! Second Chance on Wednesday, September 13. Jeopardy! Second Chance is an opportunity for previous Jeopardy! contestants to return to the game for a second go-round at becoming a champion. Parameswaran first appeared in the game on April 28, 2021. 

Not only a graduate of Beavercreek High School, Hari also completed all his early education within Beavercreek City Schools, where he left his stamp on many still in our community. 

"Hari was one of my third-grade students that I will always remember. He was kind, compassionate, inquisitive, and highly intelligent. It was very apparent that he would be successful in whatever he chose to do," said Jo Ann Rigano, current Beavercreek Board of Education President.  

Also, while attending Beavercreek Schools, Hari was a member of the BHS tennis team and captain of the Beavercreek High School academic and history bowl teams. In 2019, as a senior, he was named National History Bowl Player of the Year. He also served as a 2019 Beavercreek High School Valedictorian. 

After graduation, he attended the Georgia Institute of Technology, graduating in December 2022 with his B.S. in Electrical Engineering. He currently resides in California, where he works as a hardware engineer.

“I’m really grateful for the opportunity to be back on Jeopardy!, and I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the many wonderful teachers who taught me at Beavercreek. I hope you all will tune in this Wednesday,” he said. 

The District is incredibly proud of Hari and his accomplishments and can not wait to see how he finishes in the Second Chance Tournament. The winner of Wednesday's competition will face off against Monday and Tuesday's winners.
