He concurrently began using his knowledge of human resources, business management, health and safety, and adult education to work with LMSC where he helped to develop and continues to manage, the safety and education divisions of the organization. In his spare time, Stewart enjoys serving on the Advisory Boards of Chattahoochee Technical College, Le Cordon Bleu – Atlanta and Gwinnett Technical College. Stewart also serves as a board director for L.A.F.T.R. (Liberty Assistance Fund for Transplant Recipients) and UCCA (United Culinary Chefs Association).
