Answer: This Furman grad and Fort Wayne, Indiana native recently won two rounds on “Jeopardy!” If you replied with “Who is Nicole Cocklin?” you’d be right. The 2014 Furman University music alumna prevailed through two rounds on the long-running trivia game show and came home with more than $20,000 in winnings.

Cocklin is a member of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Chorus and a travel adviser for Travel Leaders in Fort Wayne. Her love for excursions and making travel dreams come true for others started with her mother, also a seasoned travel agent. In Travel Pulse, Cocklin says she is looking forward to a cruise in June that will take her to Venice, several Greek islands, Croatia and Montenegro.
