Matthew Pankiewicz is 10 years old and attends Maryvale Intermediate School.  And here's why he's been selected as this week's Good Kid of the Week.  

Matthew was recently given the "Do the Right Thing" award from the Cheektowaga Police Department for knowing what to do in an emergency.  His mom says when she experienced a medical emergency in November of last year, Matthew was calm and brave enough to call his grandmother (who is a nurse) and dial 9-1-1 without hesitation.  Without his fast reactions, his mom says she might not be alive today.

Good for you Matthew. He wins an Archcard to McDonald's and a WYRK Good Kid t-shirt courtesy of Custom Tee Identity Ink in Kenmore.

Congratulations, Matthew Pankiewicz!
