Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano honored Alec Fischthal, a student from George Hewlett High School in North Woodmere, with a citation on Friday, December 16th at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola for coming in second place in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament. Fischthal made it to the Teen Tournament finals but missed out on first place by one dollar.
“I would like to congratulate Alec Fischthal, a student from right here in Nassau County, for coming in second place in the Jeopardy Teen Tournament,” said County Executive Mangano. “He made us all proud, and I know this is only this first of his many achievements. I wish him luck in his future endeavors.”
