Suns and NAU Launch "Educator of the Month" Program

The Phoenix Suns and Northern Arizona University have launched “Educator of the Month,” a program designed to reward Arizona teachers and guidance counselors for their exceptional work in the classroom and community.

Students are encouraged to nominate an “Educator of the Month” by logging on to to submit an application. The Suns and NAU will select four honorees to be recognized through the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

Honorees of the award will receive two lower-level tickets to an upcoming Suns home game, a $50 Team Shop gift card and the unique opportunity to watch the Suns pre-game warm-ups courtside prior to participating in an on-court photograph. The recipient and his/her guests will also enjoy dinner in the team’s Club Annexus, located at US Airways Center.

Students who nominate the winning “Educator of the Month” will also receive two lower-level tickets to the Suns home game in which his or her educator is honored. In addition, the student will have the opportunity to watch the Suns warm up with his or her educator.

Northern Arizona University is the official education partner of the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury, collaborating on various community and education-based initiatives with an emphasis on the importance of higher education.
