Dr. Melissa C. Lloyd

I am humbled and honored to serve as the principal of Lugoff Elementary School. Born and raised in Camden, SC, I am a proud graduate of Camden High School (CHS). Upon graduating from CHS, I attended Clemson University, where I received a BA in Elementary Education. After graduating from Clemson, I returned home to Camden and taught 4th and 5th grades at Camden Elementary (now Jackson School) and Pine Tree Hill Elementary. While teaching, I returned to graduate school and received a Masters in Educational Administration from Winthrop University and an Education Specialist Degree in Counselor Education from the University of South Carolina. In 1998, I joined the Lugoff Elementary School family as assistant principal and became the principal of this outstanding school in 2004. Truly a life long learner, I completed my academic career by earning a Doctorate in 2014 from Walden University.

Outside of school, I am mother to a wonderful son, William, married to a jokester husband, Reggie, and mama to one furry baby, Josie. I am proud to be a Lugoff Elementary Count and hope that you are too!

Mrs. Adele Dixon

Lugoff Elementary is a fun, safe, creative and exciting place to be each day and I am honored to serve as the assistant principal.  This is my sixth year at LES and I love coming to work everyday.  I was a classroom teacher for 12 years in grades 3-5 and worked one year as a Reading Coach. After working in Richland One for 5 years, I worked at Pine Tree Hill, Blaney and Doby's Mill Elementary. I am a product of USC, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s in Teaching and a Master’s in Education Administration. When I'm not working, the best days of my life are spent with my husband, Barry and our 4 children and new grandbaby. We love going to the beach and watching Tiger football. 2020 has been a historical and unusual year, but as journey through this together, let's remember --  "At the home of the Counts, we make everyday Count!"
