STRATFORD, Conn. — The mayor of Stratford, Conn., is proposing to name a school for a teacher who was killed in the massacre in nearby Newtown.

Mayor John Harkins says the bravery shown by Victoria Soto in protecting her children should never be forgotten.

The 27-year-old Soto was a Stratford resident. She was killed Dec. 14 inside Sandy Hook Elementary School as she tried to shield her students from the gunman. The shooter killed 20 children and six women at the school before committing suicide.

Harkins on Monday proposed to give Soto's name to a new school. Construction is set to begin this summer.
