Some of the nation's best known heroes have called Tennessee home...from Andrew Jackson, Davy Crockett, and Alvin York....to our lesser-known, modern-day heroes serving in the Armed Forces....But, as Ken Wilshire found, few have ever been recognized so heroically as an ordinary railroad engineer from Jackson , TN.
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.
