Shah M Haleem, a Bangladeshi expatriate living in the US state of Texas, has been awarded the prestigious US Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award-2021.

Haleem, former chairman of Bangladesh Association of Houston (BAH), received the award at a programme in the second week of November for both his lifelong service to the Bangladeshi community and voluntary work in the US, said a press release on Thursday.

He was rewarded with a signed certificate by President of the United States Joe Biden, a plaque, a Presidential Achievement coin with seal, a Presidential Achievement coat pin, a White House Presidential pen and a champagne glass with the Presidential Seal.

Bangladesh Association and Bangladesh American Center have been a big part of his life as he has been volunteering for the organisations for over 25 years.
