Wheel of Fortune

On Monday night, Kelsey Buchholz, an English teacher at Garretson High School, participated and placed third on the game show Wheel of Fortune.

Buchholz auditioned for the show last July in North Dakota when the 'Wheel-Mobile,' the game shows official tour bus, visited Fargo. This bus regularly travels the nation searching for future show participants.

After given a call back audition, Buchholz was eventually selected to take part in the show.

Buchholz would finish the game in third place, but she did win a cash prize of $7,550 to take home with her. In a recent interview with The Argus Leader, Buchholz said the experience was "surreal" and a "dream come true."
