An elementary school in the US state of Texas will be named after Indian-American Sonal Bhuchar, so that future generations can remember their contributions to the field of education and philanthropy. The 'Fort Bend Independent School District (FBISD) Board of Trustees unanimously approved a proposal to name this new primary school after Sonal.
Sonal died of cancer in 2019 at the age of 58. The school will be opened in January 2023 at the Riverstone Community. Sonal, originally from Mumbai, was a professional physiotherapist and earned a bachelor's degree in physical therapy from Bombay University. She moved to Houston in 1984 with her husband Subodh Bhuchar.
