Port of Beaumont Commission vice-president says secret to success is a positive attitude, education

When walking down the halls at the port administration building alongside Lee Smith, you feel like you’re with a celebrity. Visitors jump up to shake his hand, co-workers come out of their offices to say hello and almost everyone makes it a point to greet him.

Lee Smith is Commissioner of Ward 3 for the Port of Beaumont Navigation District of Jefferson County, and vice president of the Port Board of Commissioners.
