Meadow Glen Teacher One of Ten in Nation to Win Technology Award
Saluda River Club is proud to be located in the prestigious Lexington One School District. With state-of-the-art schools and top-rated teachers, the district is among the top in South Carolina. Recently, two teachers in the district were honored with “first-place prizes in the PBS LearningMedia and The Henry Ford’s 2012 Teacher Innovator Awards.” With only 10 teachers in the country awarded these prizes, Lexington One School District is lucky to have such amazing teachers!
Congratulations to Meadow Glen Elementary’s first grade teacher, Lori Russell for winning this amazing award. According to the article, “Russell incorporated digital media in [her] classroom as a way to stimulate group and individual learning. Students employ Kindles, iPods, iPads, MP3 players, and laptops to read, listen and illustrate stories, and interact with other students.”
As acknowledgment of their hard work, the teachers were given a weeklong “Innovation Immersion Experience” at The Henry Ford, a PBS TeacherLine online professional development course, a plaque and a gift bag. Congratulations to both teachers!
Saluda River Club has never been more proud of our schools and the fact that we can offer a top-rated education for your children. Students residing in our award-winning community attend Meadow Glen Elementary, Meadow Glen Middle and starting this fall, the new River Bluff High School.

Indeed a progressive school district! The school board makes good long-term decisions, and their forethought and planning over the last 20 years is, in large measure, why Lexington County as a whole has prospered so.
