Vote set to name Conn. school for slain teacher

STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) A proposal to name a school after a teacher killed in the Newtown, Conn., school shootings is set to go before the Stratford town council.

Mayor John Harkins is recommending naming a new elementary school named after Victoria Soto, a 27-year-old Stratford resident who died trying to shield her students from the gunman inside Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The Town Council is scheduled to vote on the name of the school tonight, exactly one month after the shootings.

The mayor also is hoping to build a memorial to Soto, and a petition has been started to rename a local street after her.

Soto graduated from Stratford High School in 2003.
