JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Christopher Hunter wants to be the next President of the United States. Christopher is in sixth grade at Ribault Middle School. One of his teachers, Angela Curry, says he is a joy to have in the classroom. "He's very smart. He's inquisitive," she says.
"He loves to read so when I first met him and I had a conversation with him I was impressed because you can tell he reads the newspaper, he watches the news. He's like talking to a 60 year old man, he's that knowledgeable!" says Curry.
Curry also says Christopher is always attentive and willing to help his classmates.
Christopher says he loves to read; a passion he says started as competition to know more than his older sister. However, now he says he realizes its importance. "You have a better future, you have a greater chance at a better future when you learn and you read," he says.
Christopher says he prefers to read nonfiction books about cars and sports.
He also likes to play baseball, football and basketball.
