You know, if you think back to someone who truly influenced your life in one way or another, he or she will most likely be a teacher. Well, Ken Wilshire, met a college professor and administrator with some 45 years experience touching the lives of young folks with paint, clay, stone and metal and now he's joined many of his students to follow his own dreams.
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.
