Elizabeth Molina Morgan, who leads the 21,850-student Washington County, Md., school district, has been named the 2010 Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators.

Ms. Morgan, who has headed the district for nine years, was recognized for her achievements in working to close the achievement gap among students of different racial and ethnic groups and for expanding learning options, such as magnet schools and the International Baccalaureate program, districtwide.

As the honoree, Ms. Morgan will present a $10,000 college scholarship to a student at her high school alma mater, the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York City.
