‘Kid President’ touts FHU fundraiser, becomes Internet sensation


Robby Novak first dressed up as “Kid President”  as a silly way to promote a Dec. 7 benefit dinner at Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, Tenn., featuring former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
But the 8-year-old, whose family attends the Estes Church of Christ in Henderson, quickly became an Internet sensation with a series of videos and a website at KidPresident.com.
“It took off, went viral and turned into something bigger than we ever imagined,” said Brad Montague, who is Novak’s brother-in-law and works with marketing for FHU. “We’re now trying to use it as a way to spread good.”
The idea: help unite a politically divided nation by looking at the world through a child’s eyes.
