Astronaut Sunita L. Williams Honored By First School in Massachusetts Town Named After a Woman of Color The town of Needham, Massachusetts is a suburb of Boston and home to approximately 30,000 people, the Franklin W. Olin School of Engineering and now its first school named after a woman of color. On June 7, 2017, the Needham School Committee voted unanimously to name the town's new school the Sunita L. Williams Elementary School, named for the accomplished American astronaut and United States Navy officer. "My dad came, immigrated from India with nothing," Williams told Boston25News. "My parents didn't have much and we had a wonderful life, it's pretty cool." Captain Williams' flight suit, Navy uniform, service pictures and fifth-grade school picture are all on display at the school named after her. Williams was born in Euclid, Ohio, and is of Indo-Slovenian descent. She received a Bachelor of Science from the United States Naval Academy and a Master of Science degree in Engineering Management from Florida Institute of Technology.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
