You know you don't have to travel very far in Tennessee for an outing to a really nice Zoo. While Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga all offer unique experiences for zoo visitors, It all started in Memphis. and as Ken Wilshire discovered, the Memphis Zoo is over 100 years old and growing more than ever.
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.
