Washington County Public Schools Superintendent Elizabeth M. Morgan was invited to take part in the welcoming ceremonies Wednesday morning at the White House for Mexican President Felipe Calderon, according to the Association of Latino Administrators & Superintendents.

The White House invited Carlos Garcia, president of the Arlington, Texas-based Association of Latino Administrators & Superintendents (ALAS) to be part of the welcoming ceremonies and he, in turn, invited Morgan to be part of the welcoming ceremonies, said Raquel Perez, the association's executive assistant.

Morgan recently was appointed to the ALAS board of directors and she lives near Washington, D.C., Perez said.

Morgan also is the 2010 National Superintendent of the Year, as named by the American Association of School Administrators.

Perez said Garcia invited three other ALAS board members to the ceremonies at the White House.

Perez said the welcoming ceremonies might be canceled due to rain.

Morgan said Calderon's wife, Mexico's first lady Margarita Zavala, and first lady Michelle Obama are expected to tour a Montgomery County, Md., school that has a large Hispanic population.
