President for a day

Shown above, in an official USPS photograph, is Postmaster General Jack Potter welcoming “President Sterling Watson” to USPS Headquarters. Watson,11, arrived in a Presidential limosine and was escorted by Secret Service agents.

Watson had made a request to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which is dedicated to helping grant the wishes of children with life-threatening diseases, to be president for a day. According to the Pentagram, the young man,who is from Texas, has T-Cell Lymphoma.

During his visit Potter presented Watson with framed stamp art featuring the White House. Watson also took a ride in one of the Postal Service’s new hydrogen-powered minivans.
