Paul Hsu — standing outside the Harvard University Center for Government and International Studies — has said that he and business partners will continue to create jobs that ensure Crestview's growth. His book, "Guardians of the Dream," published last week by Maxwell Publishing, talks about immigrants' contributions to the American dream.

CRESTVIEW — Next week, the founder of the Crestview Technology Air Park and several regional defense and aerospace companies will receive the key to the city.

Mayor David Cadle will present Paul Hsu with the honor during the June 5 Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting.

"Paul Hsu is the embodiment of the American dream: a penniless immigrant who came to this country and, through hard work, has made a lasting impact on the American aerospace and defense industry," Cadle said. "His foresight to create the Crestview Technology Air Park is having an impact directly on our community."

Chamber President Dennis Mitchell also praised Hsu's contributions.

"We are honored to recognize his many years of creating and bringing quality aerospace technical jobs to the Crestview area and, in particular, Bob Sikes Airport," Mitchell said.

During the meeting, Hsu will sign copies of his autobiography, "Guardians of the Dream: An Enduring Legacy of America’s Immigrants," which attendees may obtain for a $20 donation to the Foy Shaw Memorial Scholarship Fund.

"The book is a strong argument that America is still the pinnacle of hope for personal success, no matter how humble your origins," Mitchell said.
