The 100 outstanding school administrators were chosen on the basis of consistently excellent leadership and effectiveness in improving students' performance, implementing systemic reforms, involving the community, human relations and working with the political system. Other Maryland winners are Evelyn Holman, Wicomico County superintendent since 1984, Noel T. Farmer, Frederick County school head since 1987, and Stuart D. Berger, the new Baltimore County superintendent who was cited for his performance while directing reforms in the Wichita, Kan., school system.
