Hometown Hero - Mukul K. Agarwal
Lost on September 11th 2001

Mukul Argarwal grew up in Kendall Park and graduated from South Brunswick High School in 1980.  After graduating Mukul went on to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania in 1984 and the Wharton School earning an MBA in 1990.  After working in California Mukul moved back to New Jersey to be near his parents who had health issues. September 11th was the 2nd day at his new job at Fiduciary Trust.  Mr. Agrarwal’s widow Rhea Stone remembered that Mukul read a newspaper article about a mistreated Indian domestic worker in Hong Kong. Mukul’s parents were from India and feeling a sense of duty Mukul contacted the Indian Diplomatic Mission and paid for the worker’s flight back home to India.  South Brunswick High School classmate Hank Kalet who teaches journalism at Rutgers University remembers Mukul’s wit and humor. Debbie Lawrence, a friend from South Brunswick High, remembered how Agarwala had often helped her with advanced placement chemistry homework. “He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh at himself,” she said.
