I haven't actually tried this, so I'm not 100% sure how well it will
work, but how about:

1. Saving the white silhouette of the logo (with a nice smooth edge)
as a PNG with transparent background (assuming you have the logo as a
picture on a background, you can do this in GIMP)

2.  Putting the PNG in a picture box with a transparent background

3. Putting the box over the box with the text (*without* making the
text wrap around the box).

This way you can still change the text, move the logo around, etc.

I remember that PNGs with transparency are definitely transparent when
you put them over other pictures; I can't remember if I ever tried
putting them over text.
