The bus was commissioned by Commissioner Rodney Ellis.
"My dad is thrilled," ABC13's Melanie Lawson said in a tweet.
Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church also posted a selfie of Reverend Lawson and Reverend Jesse Jackson on their Instagram page as they worshipped in church today.
A founding father of Wheeler Avenue in 1962, Reverend Lawson became a significant player in the battle to end segregation in Houston.
Lawson told Eyewitness News his proudest achievements are his four children, including our own ABC13 family member, Melanie Lawson.
