Meet the Chef

Chef Randy White was born in Lubbock and found his passion for food at a young age. Chef White graduated from Lubbock High School, and between playing football, running track, playing inline hockey, and keeping up with his classwork, he worked as the lead cook at Moose Magoo’s. Chef White worked there under a chef from Louisiana who inspired him to go to culinary school.


After 2 semesters in Texas Tech's Construction Engineering program, White decided that he would not be happy unless he answered his true calling, food. He moved to Dallas to study at the Art Institute of Dallas’s Culinary Arts program. There he had the privilege of learning under some great mentors including a rare Master Chef.


During his education, Chef White started working for the American Airlines Training & Conference Center. The chefs for whom he worked were instrumental in shaping him into the culinarian that he is today. Later, he started working at the largest hotel in Texas, the Gaylord Texan Hotel & Conference Center.


Chef White became employed at Lubbock Christian University in 2006, starting as a chef. He now holds the position of Chef Manager. Over the course of his career, Chef White has had the privilege of cooking for such distinguished individuals as General Colin Powell, President George W. Bush, Former Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Roger Staubach, Michael Irvin, Christian Castro, Josh Hamilton, Doris Roberts, Bob Goff, Aaron Watson, and Mark Lanier.


In 2018, he obtained a certification from the Culinary Institute of America for ProChef Level II—the equivalent of a Certified Executive Sous Chef.


He has two kids, Elizabeth and Aidyn, with whom he likes to bake, watch anime, ride 4 wheelers, camp, fish, and play games.


The LCU Dining Services is truly a partnership between the university and Aramark, an outstanding food service provider.
