Memorial fund for slain principal set up at CU
MIDDLEBURY, Conn. (12/26/12)--The family of slain Sandy Hook Elementary School Principal Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung has established a memorial fund in her name at a Connecticut credit union where she was a member.

Waterbury CT Teachers FCU, a $238 million asset credit union located in Middlebury, Conn., and which has a branch  in Danbury, announced the Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung Memorial Fund in her memory.

Hochsprung was among those killed Dec. 14 at the elementary school in Newtown Conn., while trying to protect  students from harm, said the credit union's website.

She "was a dedicated teacher who inspired her students to reach their fullest potential," said a message on the site. "She was admired and respected by her students, colleagues and parents for her caring and nurturing nature and will be sorely missed," it said.
