Holley, 21, is the daughter of Paul and Kathy Holley, who still live in Racine. At Case, Allison was a member of the National Honor Society and is a 2013 International Baccalaureate full diploma graduate. A senior at Lawrence University, Holley is majoring in English and Spanish.

The championship starts Feb. 13. On the line: a $100,000 grand prize and a chance to be on the next edition of Tournament of Champions. The air date featuring Allison is slated for Feb. 16.

“The College Championship is always a fun event for me, because I get to spend every day in the company of bright college students,” said JEOPARDY! host Alex Trebek. “Whether they attend large institutions or small ones, public universities or private colleges, they’re all tough competitors with a great sense of school spirit.”

The quiz show is in its 33rd season in syndication.
