When we think of family traditions we certainly don't think of working with molten metal and dangerous conditions. But, Ken Wilshire found a family in Clarksville who has carried on a rich Tennessee tradition of producing some of the highest quality iron in the world with no plans of shutting down for even more generations to come.
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.
