Question Stretch Text - Powerpoint Help needed ASAP

I need to stretch a line of text for a project that someone else started. In word I can easily stretch fonts. I cannot find that same feature in 2013 Powerpoint. I don't want to just increase the space between the characters.
I have tried creating a text art box...but the text won't stretch when I size the box and I can't find any way to get it to work. Maybe I'm missing something? I would think this would be an easy thing to do. Could someone please advise me?
Thank you!
