February 12, 2010

Washington County schools Superintendent Betty Morgan was named national superintendent of the year by the American Association of School Administrators at a conference in Phoenix, Ariz., on Thursday night. Maryland's superintendent of the year, Morgan was chosen as one of four finalists last fall from around the country. She went through lengthy interviews in Washington, D.C., in January before being chosen the winner. She is the first Maryland superintendent to win in the 23-year history of the award. Morgan was chief academic officer in Baltimore under CEO Robert Booker before taking the Washington County job in 2001. She has worked in four school districts in Maryland.
