BRHSF: Did you have a favorite teacher, club, sport or experience that made a long-term impact on you at BRHS?
LC: I met my wife in Mr. Barry’s Physical Science class, and we’ve kept up with him ever since. I had so many incredible teachers during my time at BRMHS. I absolutely adored learning from Ms. Willis (English), Ms. Melton (English), and Ms. Cao (Physics), but the main reason I came to Baton Rouge High was to learn Talented Theatre from Glenn McMahon. I took theatre all four years, and even got the chance to mentor freshmen actors my senior year. I learned so much from Mac during my time there.
BRHSF: What made you decide to join the BRHSF Board?
LC: During my college career, I had the opportunity to intern with BRHSF under Lauren Ford. I absolutely adored my time with the Foundation and still consider Lauren a good friend. When Molly approached me about being on the Board, I was overjoyed to accept the opportunity to rejoin the team.
BRHSF: Why is the Foundation’s mission of philanthropic support for BRHS important to you and to the community?
LC: Baton Rouge High is a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School that continues to provide the highest quality education and college preparation to the best and brightest students. As highlighted by the BRHSF Hall of Fame, the success of these students has an incredible economic impact on the Baton Rouge community. The best way to ensure the continued success of these students is by supporting the Foundation.
BRHSF: As a Board member do you have any personal goals for your service? What do you see as your most important role as a Board member?
LC: I would love to find new ways to engage current students to establish Bulldog Pride and showcase the talents and accomplishments of these students to alumni.
Landon can still be found on stage from time to time acting in productions at Theatre Baton Rouge or singing with his cover band Two For Nothing.
