Sharon Paulsell wheelchair seat covers sit on a few chairs at the Veteran's Air Show on May 28. Paulsell and her Husband donated over 70 seat covers for the Honor Flights program. No one in Paulsell's family uses a wheelchair. She said, "If it wasn't for Honor Flights I wouldn't have thought about it," said Paulsell.
Sharon Paulsell makes wheelchair back covers that let people with disabilities express themselves with a cover of their choice, or they can design a cover themselves on the website. "I found things to go around the wheels and arms, but I didn’t find anything for the person in the wheelchair to express themselves, and that's why it's the name for our business, Wheel Chair Personalities." Paulsell said.
