Abstract

Clemtec Corporation was founded by "Hard Mr. "C, on the idea of a child's need, and the philosophy that, " It's not what others did not teach that should concern you, but what you can learn now to overcome the difference that is important.".

 

 

Founding

In the 1960's, a young college student attending North Carolina Central University mentored and tutored school aged children in Durham, NC. As a future teacher, he was surprised at the problems and needs of students. He realized many students were missing fundamentals of education, and their future was plagued with disadvantages. He concluded, many of the issues concerning him were no fault of students. He decided to help students who were neglected, poorly taught, "labeled" discipline problems, and told they would never succeed. He questioned the problems of students' education, not from the view of where students should be, but attacked issues of students' need as they existed. He realized the needs of students were magnified by disadvantages and limited skills. He made the needs of students a priority.

 

 

The Start

For that young college student, that meant going to ghettos, slums, and deprived areas of Durham, as well as affluent communities to help children meet their educational needs. He discarded the idea that a child at a certain age should know all desirable things. He rejected that concept, and echoed that circumstances of birth, denied opportunities, and the sting of poverty influenced the learning of students. No child he said, "thinks well on an empty stomach, a tired body, a troubled mind, and a sleepless night". He disregarded student's age, circumstances, ethnicity, and limitations. He begin to teach and tutor students in innovative ways to increase learning and make a difference. His observation of the needs of children made him realize even more the need to teach and help them. In his senior year, he vowed to make his school's motto, "truth and service" a part of his life's mission. His message to all was, "It's not what others did not teach that should concern you, but what you can learn now to overcome the difference that is important."

 

History

These words and ideas established a small educational service business in early 1966. The business was limited in the early years and all services were free. Providing free educational service to all who desired it was an innovative start to success. Free professional services with effective solutions to problems for schools and students was unheard of in the 60's; by 1969 the company experienced several successes. Some schools were viewing Clemtec as an effective discipline, consulting and motivational service. At the same time their reputation had spread from North Carolina to Virginia and Maryland and certain parts of the east coast. The company grew in the 1970's. In the early 80's it had become a well regarded educational resource. By 1989 Clemtec experienced another growth period and the company later Incorporated. They crossed the country, helping schools and educators who needed their services. 55 years later Clemtec is still helping children, motivating students, changing behaviors, and providing schools and teachers solutions that solve educational problems. They are forever fulfilling the motto of North Carolina Central University- “truth and service”.
