Elizabeth Molina Morgan, superintendent of Washington County, Md., Public Schools since 2001, has been named the 2010 National Superintendent of the Year. Morgan was honored today at the American Association of School Administrators' National Conference on Education in Phoenix.

Morgan was recognized for increasing the graduation rate and reducing the dropout rate in Washington County through the development of a student-focused strategic plan. Under her direction, test scores have steadily increased each year, particularly for minority and poverty groups, and the school system has achieved Adequate Yearly Progress in all schools and in all areas. In recent years, the district started one of the state's few International Baccalaureate programs and spread magnet programs to all school levels.

As the 2010 National Superintendent of the Year honoree, Morgan is entitled to present a $10,000 college scholarship to a student at the high school from which she graduated: Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York City.
