A local teacher is helping young boys become young gentlemen. Every Wednesday nearly 60 students at Memminger Elementary dress for success and meet for the Gentleman’s Club.
Raymond Nelson is the student support specialist at Memminger Elementary in Downtown Charleston. He works with at-risk children and over winter break thought of an idea to teach his students life lessons.
“I was thinking maybe if I have the boys dress for success,” said Nelson. “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,” said Nelson.
Nelson keeps a stash of donated jackets, vests and ties at school for kids who don’t have their own.
“A lot of my students perform well when they know someone cares about them,” said Nelson.
