A South Carolina teacher is starting a new movement to help instill life lessons into young boys ready to learn. At Memminger Elementary in Downtown Charleston, Raymond Nelson being proudly held responsible for the group that delivers basic, yet necessary skills to children outside of the general education they learn in school. In a recent with WSMV, Nelson told reporters about his experience working with at risk youth, and what inspired him to create The Gentlemen’s Club.
“I was thinking maybe if I have the boys dress for success,” Nelson said. “When was the last time you saw someone fighting in a tuxedo?”
Nelson started The Gentleman’s Club. Their motto is “Look good, feel good, do good.”
Every Wednesday, dozens of first through fifth graders walk into class in their Sunday’s best.
“They like the reaction of walking up to classrooms and say, ‘Oh, you look so nice and handsome,’ they just love it,” Nelson said.
