Joseph mentioned in his speech that Ashok's motivation is that he cares about people and he sees the importance of using geotechnology for decision making in our world. "I also admire Ashok because he is a squeaky wheel. He's not afraid to tell companies that they're not doing all they can to hire and train graduates, or tell associations that having an education committee on the books is one thing, but DOING something is much more important! Ashok, you inspire all of us. Congratulations!"
