HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- A Harrisonburg educator is receiving statewide recognition.

Dr. Scott Kizner, the superintendent of Harrisonburg City schools recently won Superintendent of the Year for our region.

Other superintendents from our region, which covers 20 school divisions, from Rockingham County to Campbell County, nominated Kizner.

Kizner now has the opportunity to be named Superintendent of the Year for Virginia in May.

The Virginia Association of School Superintendents looks for a leader who operates the school division well and whose students have a high performance.

Kizner said this award is for everyone, students, neighbors and staff because in Harrisonburg, teachers make sure kids learn at the highest level and be anyone who they want to be.

"We have children that come with many challenges and many needs, but we look at every kid as the next Nobel Prize winner. We look as every kid as the next superintendent, next council member, next President of the United States," said Kizner.

Harrisonburg City School's former superintendent Dr. Donald Ford not only won the regional title, but also the state title.
