2014 Outstanding Service

The AATSP Outstanding Service Award is given to a member of the Association who has made outstanding service contributions to our organization. Selection criteria include holding leadership positions within the Association and/or one of its chapters, serving as a chair or member of important Association committees, writing for or editing Association publications, and/or representing the AATSP in a national or international capacity.


The 2014 recipient of the AATSP Outstanding Service Award is Bernard A. López, retired faculty member and administrator from the New York City Department of Education.

Bernie López has been a member of the AATSP for some 37 years. During that time he has served the organization in several capacities but is known primarily for his work as the Staten Island Center Administrator for the National Spanish Examinations for some 21 years and the President of the New York Metropolitan Chapter of the AATSP since 2000. Bernie’s letters of support attest to his service, leadership and professionalism. A colleague noted that Bernie has put every possible effort into championing the New York Metropolitan Chapter through educational, cultural, and social activities such as the Annual Galas, Fall Meetings, and Spring and Winter Outings. A colleague writes, "Mr. López has demonstrated exemplary service to the organization by instituting a series of professional development activities aimed at enriching and educating its members. Specifically, these activities include bringing in authors, reaching out to other related professional organizations, and making members aware of professional development opportunities. In summary, Bernie’s dedication and exemplary leadership attest to his worthiness as the 2014 recipient of the AATSP Outstanding Service Award.
