Chemistry teacher Gerardo Lopez was the Phoenix Suns-Northern Arizona University Educator of the Month for April.   He attended the April 2 Suns-Houston game, receiving four tickets, and complementary food and beverages, and a $50 team shop gift card.  The student who nominated him, Ailyn Melendrez was also invited to the game.  The two were introduced on the court prior to the game.  


“I am definitely excited and humbled.  Honestly, I am a little shocked,” Lopez said.


If you were wondering, Lopez earned his undergraduate degree at NAU, his Masters at ASU, and is currently in the Educational Leadership program at NAU.  He also was able to see his former student, Alan Williams of North High, play in-person.  Lopez was his chemistry tutor.
