Back in the day when horses were the major means of transportation, if your family steed needed new shoes it was off to the local blacksmith'..and, just like transportation has changed, so has the role of blacksmiths. Ken Wilshire discovered a creative new way some Tennessee metalsmiths are serving society.
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.
