The Stratford, Conn., Town Council voted Monday to name a new primary school building after Victoria Soto, one of six staffers killed during December's tragic school shooting in nearby Newtown, Conn., NBC Connecticut reported.
Stratford Mayor John Harkins told NBC Connecticut that he recommended the town council name the new site for Stratford Academy's Honeyspot House building after 27-year-old Soto. The town of Stratford, where Soto reportedly grew up in, is located just about 22 miles southeast from Newtown. She graduated from New Stratford High School in 2003.
Soto died while trying to protect her first-grade students when a gunman opened fire at Newtown's Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14. Twenty children and five other adult staff members were also killed in what became the second worst school shooting in U.S. history.
