Landon Swilley is in the midst of an apprenticeship after completing #culinary courses at his high school in Forney. His inspiration: his father. “My dad cooked a lot when I was a kid. He bought a smoker and used it every weekend. I watched him and then I started helping him. I really like cooking,” said Swilley, a 2016 graduate of Forney High School who already has logged time at Dallas-area banquets and restaurants. “I want to run my own hotel or restaurant or own my catering business,” said Swilley. “I could also see myself becoming a personal chef as long as I can plan the menus.” Read more about the culinary program at @elcentrocollege using the link in our bio.
