The Academic Student of the Week for Fairfield County School District is Malik Pringle, a fifth grade student at Geiger Elementary School. Malik is a model student and a member of the Jr. Beta Club.  The citizenship he displays each and every day is remarkable.  Malik is a five year survivor of brain and spinal cancer.  Despite challenges, he shows up every day with a positive attitude, big, bright smile, and an eagerness to learn.  Malik enjoys playing with his dog and baseball.   He is an active participant with Courageous Kidz and Camp Happy Days Foundation.  Malik will have the wonderful opportunity to go to Disney World next year through the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
