DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - After a day of meetings, fundraising and speeches, President Obama had one more stop to make yesterday before leaving DFW. In front of Air Force One, he held a lengthy conversation with a North Texas 10-year-old that she’ll never forget.

“I was so nervous, I didn’t know what to say,” said MacKenzie Schreiber.

MacKenzie stood with her grandparents, her father, and her uncle to send off the President after his latest trip to North Texas. MacKenzie’s uncle serves in the Marine Corps. The President often meets with family members of staffers while traveling the country. Another family from Benbrook also lined up to greet Mr. Obama

CBS 11’s Steve Pickett sat down with MacKenzie a day after the encounter.

Steve: I see you talking to him, what are you telling him?

MacKenzie: He asked me what I was doing this summer, and I said swimming a lot.

Even though she admits she was nervous, by the end of the conversation, MacKenzie says she was calm.

“It’s actually no big deal to be nervous, because he’s so nice, you don’t have to be nervous. He’ll ask you questions, shake your hand, take picture, he’s really nice.”

MacKensie also says her family received a tour of Air Force One before meeting the President.
