More Information

You know, I've always wondered who came up with the idea of rocking chairs and why. There's just something relaxing about sitting in one. But, Ken Wilshire found a fellow in Cannon county who's put a brand new twist to a chair like this.

Ken Wilshire joined the Tennessee Crossroads in 2008 with a desire to tell stories about people who have found their passions in life and who would otherwise go unrecognized for their contributions to their community.  Ken began his career at WREG-TV in Memphis, writing, producing and editing news stories, features and documentaries. After leaving Channel 3 he joined Fed Ex in their communications department as a writer/producer and was promoted to the department manager. Ken spent almost 25 years in operations management at FedEx and other Fortune 500 companies.
