HOUSTON: Five Indian Americans have been recognised by an industry body here for their contributions towards enhancing and empowering business and education between India and the US.

The Indo-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Houston (IACCGH) annual awards were presented last week at its 14th edition under the theme 'Empowering Energy & Education - Onwards & Upwards'.

The ceremony, attended by around 650 guests, included Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Congressmen Al Green and Pete Olson, Harris county sheriff Adrian Garcia, Mayor of Houston Anise Parker among others.

The 'Educator of the Year' award was presented to Latha Ramchandran, dean and professor of finance at C T Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston.

Latha is an expert in international and corporate finance, energy education, corporate governance and leadership.

IACCGH founding member Jagdip Ahluwalia, who currently serves as its executive director, received a special award for his "outstanding contributions to the chamber" since its inception in 1999.

Jagdip has been a force behind promoting Indian business success in the US while providing business partners with access to opportunities in India.
