SANTA FE, Texas - The first funeral for one of the 10 people fatally shot at a high school outside Houston is set for Sunday afternoon.
  
The Islamic Society for Greater Houston says services for 17-year-old Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheikh are scheduled for a mosque in suburban Houston.
  
She'd been attending classes at Santa Fe High School since last August when she was killed Friday.
  
Her father, Abdul Aziz Sheikh, has described his daughter as a hard-working and accomplished student who aspired to work in civil service and hoped one day to join Pakistan's Foreign Office.
  
Her body is to be returned to her family in Karachi, Pakistan.
