The Young Gentlemen met recently for their first meeting at Roseland Montessori School. This club is similar to the perfect gentleman group at O.W. Dillon Elementary in which young boys learn how to be a gentleman. The first lesson given to the students today by Mr. Eric Brister was how to tie a tie and dress respectfully. The boys practiced tying their ties with his help. One of the honors of being a part of the Young Gentlemen's Club is wearing a shirt and tie on Tuesday. They will also learn table manners, etiquette, and participate in motivational talks by respected gentlemen in the community. The boys are required to have good grades and behavior to be in the club. Pictured above are Seth Goll and Mr. Eric Brister.
