The Academic Student of the Week for Fairfield County School District is Makayla James, a senior at Fairfield Central High School. Makayla is an outstanding student who has a zest for success. She is registered in dual enrollment courses and has all A’s.  She is currently ranked in the top 10 of the senior class and is the president of the Student Body, a varsity cheerleader and soccer player, a member of the National Beta Club, the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council, Elite Ladies, Academic Challenge Team, Student Government, NAACP FCHS Youth Council, and the National Honor Society.

 Makayla is definitely a representative of the school’s motto because she is Soaring to Greatness; she is a Griffin who believes, achieves, and will definitely succeed. Makayla plans to major in nursing with an ultimate goal of becoming a pediatrician.
