South Carolina Teachers Starts 'The Gentleman's Club' To Teach Boys With No Fathers Life Lessons
March 20, 2016
A teacher in South Carolina wanted to do something for young boys who don't have a father in their life.
He invites his little scholars to don their Sunday's best every Wednesday to meet for "The Gentleman's Club" where they learn life lessons for success.

Raymond Nelson says the motto of the club is "Look good, feel good, do good."
Nelson, who primarily works with at-risk children, dawned on the idea after reflecting on his own attendance of a similar group. "I was thinking, maybe if I have the boys dress for success," he told WSMV-TV. "When was the last time you saw someone fighting in a tuxedo?"
He teaches the youngsters how to properly shake hands, make eye contact, and even buys shirts and ties for the kids who can't afford them.
"A lot of my students perform well when they know someone cares about them," said Nelson. "They like the reaction of walking up to classrooms and [people] say 'Oh, you look so nice and handsome,' they just love it."
The Gentleman's Club has been such a hit, School District officials say they want other local schools to begin Gentleman's programs in their schools, too.
