    TROY, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York college plans to establish a new education center in honor of Sandy Hook Elementary School Principal Dawn Hochsprung, who was a doctoral candidate in the college's educational leadership program.

    Hochsprung, five other educators and 20 children were killed in the Dec. 14 massacre at the school in Newtown, Conn.

    The Sage Colleges has announced that its Esteves School of Education is creating the Dawn Hochsprung Center for the Promotion of Mental Health and School Safety.

    College officials say Hochsprung will receive her doctorate posthumously with her class in May 2015.

    A memorial service in honor of Hochsprung will be held Saturday on the Sage College of Albany campus. The college also has a campus in nearby Troy that's home to the Esteves School.
