(Sept. 15, 2006) -- We are pleased to report that Aaron Pressburg, a former Jordan High School yearbook editor, member of the debate team and NCCJ volunteer award winner, recently went on the nationally syndicated TV show "Wheel of Fortune"...and walked away with $8,500 in cash and prizes.
Mr. Pressburg's proud father is veteran NLB community advocate Dan Pressburg...and says son Aaron is believed to be the first Jordan High alumnus to win on the Wheel.
Aaron Pressburg is currently attending the University of California at Riverside, pursuing an education degree and potentially a degree in medicine. He scored a thrilling come-from-behind-victory in the final round, says Dad Dan.
Although he didn't win the grand prize, pocketing nearly $10k in greenies and goodies strikes us as pretty good for a few minutes work.
Way to go, Aaron!
The show is tentatively scheduled to air October 24.
