Randy Stewart is a people person.
The 27-year-old says he loves meeting people right where they are, not considering where they are going or where they have been. He loves doing what he can to help them, which is part of his new career path.
He has been serving as the safety coordinator for Brown Builders, but is changing paths with his career in construction coming to an end.
“As my career pertains to helping people is taking a new turn, I am currently enrolled in classes at Bossier Parish Community College and will be eligible to apply to the Respiratory Therapy Program Spring 2020,” Randy said.
Let’s find out more about this month’s millennial pro with some fast facts:
- Randy is a graduate of Southwood High School in Shreveport and alumni of BPCC.
- He has been happily married to his wonderful wife, Elaine, for four years.
- The couple have two dogs, Dottie and Charlie.
- In his free time, he loves to run, bike, and cook. His favorite hobby is running because he says the running community in Bossier and Shreveport is “one of a kind” and a great way to meet new people.
- He attends church at St. Joseph in Shreveport where he is involved in A.C.T.S. (adoration, community, theology, service) a Catholic-based — but not selective to only Catholic denomination attendees — team of men and women who want to mature their Christian faith, help others grow in their faith, and to introduce the love of Jesus to those who might not know Him.
- In the future, Randy hopes to be accepted into the BPCC Respiratory Therapy program, have the ability to travel and see the world, and then to become a father.
- Randy was born in Shreveport, and said that although Bossier is its own city and community, he always considered it part of his home while growing up.
- His favorite thing about Bossier is Bossier Parish Community College. Randy says it’s “an amazing place” to get an education.
- Another thing he loves about Bossier is Barksdale Air Force Base. Why? Because he says it not only provides protection for the country, but it brings people from all over the world to the area, which has so much potential.
- Randy also wanted to highlight the Cyber Innovation Center and support his A.C.T.S. brother NICERC Director Kevin Nolten by pointing out “all the great things they are doing when it comes to educating students about technology.”
- His favorite hang out spot in Bossier is the East Bank District. Randy loves going to BeauxJax Crafthouse to grab some food and watch one half of a football game before heading down the street to Flying Heart Brewing and Pub to finish watching the rest of the game there.
- One thing he would like to see Bossier have in the future is A Top Golf entertainment venue.
If there was one thing Randy could tell people about Bossier, he joked that it would be to stay away from Airline Drive between noon and 4 p.m. But seriously, he says it would be that the schools are great and although it might not seem like it on the surface, Bossier has a lot to offer and once you get plugged into the community, you will see its true greatness.
