Update October 21:
The Post and Courier has a more in-depth story on Nenderson and the award; read it here.
Each year one teacher in many states has a chance to be honored by the the Milken Educator Awards.
This year West Ashley High School's Katherine Henderson won the high honor for going above and beyond, and the award's $25,000 bounty.
