RENO, Nev. (AP) - Washoe County Schools Superintendent Heath Morrison says he has made the "incredibly difficult decision" to leave the Reno area to accept a job as superintendent of schools in Charlotte, N.C.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education confirmed it
offered the position to Morrison.

He said in a scheduled press conference at the school district that it is an opportunity he could not pass up.

Morrison was named the National Superintendent of the Year in
2012 by the American Association of School Administrators. He began
his career in Maryland as a teacher and administrator in Charles
and Montgomery counties before taking the Reno job in 2009.

Other finalists for the Charlotte job were local schools
administrator Ann Clark and Memphis City Schools leader Kriner
Cash.
