Rotarian Dr. Tom Turner shared his story with the Rotary Club of North Jackson at the club’s April 4, 2017 meeting. He told his story of growing up in Newport, Mississippi and just south of Memphis, TN and moving to Columbus, MS as a 10-year old.  He told of his early interest in airplanes in the early 1930s and his transition from an engineering student at Mississippi State University to an Orthopaedic Surgeon who performed the first hip replacement surgery in the 1970s.
He also described meeting his wife in Memphis while he was a resident there. Dr. Turner is shown in the accompanying photo during his presentation. We thank him for his long term membership in our club and for his service to the citizens of  Mississippi.
