Luis ("Lou-Box") Velez

Luis ("Lou-Box") Velez is a junior at Nyack College majoring in business administration. Born and raised in the projects, Luis overcame an abusive childhood, his father's suicide at the age of twelve, and rebellious teen years as founder of "Sex, Booze, and Money" to help pioneer Xcel. Luis has volunteered as Xcel's program director since September 1999. (4.17.78)
Yet another alcohol and drug-induced rage had come to torment our home. ** "STOP IT DADDY," I kept repeating to myself silently under my breath. - By Luis Velez, Xcel co-founder Read Luis'entire testimonial here.

Away with Words: In Pursuit of Authenticity: January 2005 [cached]

Simultaneously, we welcomed back to the fold (after completing Nyack College) returning hero and Xcel cofounder Luis Velez to replace her.Only Luis wasn't the right man for the position.

It turns out Luis made a decision to return to Xcel even though part of him believed the timing was off for him to return to the City, out of his loyalty to the organization and children we serve.This internal conflict meant that the first couple days last week were emotionally exhausting.Luis' dilemma: do what's right and pursue the call of God on his life or stay in a position that he prematurely accepted.How to proceed?
Thankfully, Luis pursued authentic comunity.
