School building named after N.H. stabbing victim
A new arts building at the White Mountain School in Bethlehem is being named in memory of Catherine Houghton, who was killed earlier this year when she returned to New Hampshire for a meeting of the school’s board of trustees.
Houghton, who was 70, died Jan. 28 after being stabbed in the lobby of a Littleton hotel. Rodney Hill of Danville, Vt., is charged with second-degree manslaughter in what authorities say was a random attack.
WCAX-TV reported that Houghton’s friends and school officials remembered her Saturday during a ceremony to dedicate the $1.5 million arts building being constructed at the school. They described the California woman as a beacon who enriched the lives of all who knew her.
