There are about 6 million miles of paved roads in the United States. This is an astounding number considering a little over 200 years ago there were none in this part of the country. Ken Wilshire caught up with some fellows who are making sure that our original Tennessee roads are mapped and their locations preserved forever.
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.
