Board Member

Welton O. Lewis is a lifelong resident of Louisiana. He was born in Lake Charles, LA in 1952, and has resided in Houma since 1956. He is married to Rhonda Guin Lewis, and they have just recently celebrated their 52nd anniversary. They have three grown children;  son Joey, daughter Misty and son Adam and among these three they have seven grandchildren.


Welton attended Houma Elementary, Houma Jr. High, and graduated from Terrebonne High in 1971. After graduating he followed in his father’s footsteps and went to work in the oilfield, working on drilling rigs and production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1988 he started class at Nicholls State University and graduated with an Associate Degree in Petroleum Safety Tech in 1992. During classes at Nicholls,  Welton also completed a course and was certified as an EMT Paramedic in 1996, working on an ambulance for 5 years in the city of New Orleans. After those five years, he returned to the oilfield as a Paramedic/Safety Trainer until retiring in 2019.


Welton has been a member of "We The People Bayou Community" for a little over a year and is presently serving on the fundraising committee and the legislative committee. He has always been a strong supporting Patriot of the United States Constitution and plans to use his position with WTPBC to encourage, educate and provide resources and information; to empower citizens to take action and encourage all citizens to learn who their elected officials are and how to hold them accountable.


Welton has adopted a quote by Edward Everett Hale to help encourage him through his fight for his rights and his freedom: "I am only one, but still, I am one. I cannot do everything, but still, I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do."
