Have you met Tom Turner? If you have, you may not recognize him, now. No one else does.
The 66-year-old former welding teacher at the Carroll County Area Technology Center recently lost 270 pounds. He is a man of many talents, who not only enjoys gardening, hunting, fishing and cooking, but was also an accomplished ballroom dancer for years.
Tom taught at the vocational school from 1987 until he retired in 2003. He moved back to Carrollton in December.
