"I began working summers at Paragon Industries at 13 years old for my father, John R. Hohenshelt. I performed almost every job in the production facility from operating machinery, welding, crating, to stacking kilns.

"Later I performed other tasks including drafting the engineering documentation for submission to Underwriters Laboratories.

"My formal education has little relation to kilns and furnaces but I will offer it anyway. B.A. in Mathematical Economics, Cum Laude, 1991, M.A. in Political Science, 1994. Juris Doctor, Cum Laude, 1995. All three degrees were earned at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Upon graduation I spent three years as a Captain in the U.S. Army.

"I returned to Paragon Industries in 1998. I began working as the plant manager and spent a great deal of time and effort learning electrical engineering and product design from my father and our engineering staff. In 2001, I was named President of Paragon Industries to permit my father to build an airplane." --John S. Hohenshelt
