He was also invited to testify before a US Congressional committee on energy-related matters. In addition to his achievements, Masood was among the 50 Indian students selected for the Government of India Fellowship for higher education abroad.

Kamaljit Kaur Jackson, a Sikh American, holds the position of Vice President of Programs and Operations at the Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC).

Kamaljit is involved in the Board of Directors for Visioning A Greater Racine (VGR) and serves as an examiner for the Baldrige National Quality Program.
