Getting the president of the United States to write a note for your teacher when you're not in school is quite a thrill. As the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports, 10-year-old Kennedy Corpus thinks President Barack Obama is "really awesome."

Kennedy tells the Press-Gazette that she "plans to take it home and frame it, but she might make a few copies first, including one for her teacher."
