From Signal Mountain TN to the Nation's Capitol, one creative Chattanooga artist has brought recognition to the state in so many colorful ways. Her name is Susan Parry and she's well-known for her jewelry and small sculptures, not to mention some very special Christmas tree ornaments. It's been quite a journey for her as Ken Wilshire discovered when he paid a visit to her studio not too long ago.
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.
