Sandy Hook teachered honored by Congressional Medal of Honor Society

An organization composed of Medal of Honor recipients traveled to Newtown last Tuesday to honor the six educators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  The Congressional Medal of Honor Society said it chose the women to receive its Citizen Honors Medal, the highest award it gives to a civilian, after receiving dozens of nominations for their actions during the shooting. 

 

In announcing the honor, the Society said the women exemplified courage, sacrifice and selflessness in trying to protect students from the gunman. 

 

The organization also honored every other member of the school’s staff with a Certificate of Commendation.
