Lee Vela will be recognized at the PRSA Houston Excalibur Awards Gala on June 21 as the recipient of the 2018 Legacy Award. The PRSA Houston Legacy Award is a prestigious award that recognizes a distinguished professional for outstanding lifetime achievement in the field of public relations.

As the vice president of Public Affairs for the Houston region of Clear Channel Outdoor, the leading outdoor advertising company in Texas and the nation, Lee Vela handles all the company's local public relations, community relations as well as new technological initiatives. For the past several years, he has focused on converting the company’s existing assets to digital technology and established the “Gulf Coast Emergency Communications Network” which features emergency messages on the company’s area digital billboards at no cost to emergency coordinators. It played a crucial role during Hurricane Harvey.

A PRSA member since 1986, he is a past president of the PRSA Houston Chapter, where he has served on the board of directors twice and chaired numerous committees. Please join us on June 21, at the Excalibur Awards Gala to recognize Lee as he receives this well-deserved honor.
