June Yi, a sixth grader at Travis Middle School, received a special delivery from President Barack Obama.

June portrayed President Obama last year as part of a social studies fair at Brandenburg Elementary School. Irving ISD school board member Nell Anne Hunt attended the event and was so impressed by June’s presentation, which was given in both English and Spanish, she wrote to President Obama to tell him.

“I told him about June Yi and what an excellent student he was and how much he admired him [Obama],” Hunt said. The White House responded with a package full of memorabilia for June Yi, which included a signed letter from President Obama, photos, a Q&A with the President and a coloring book.
