Keith Mann knows the importance of college and how it can change the course of a young boy or young girl’s life. It can really set them up to be in a positive position for the rest of their life. However, sometimes, because of their financial situation, they are unable to attend college. They are left with dreams that never go past the dream stage. They are only dreams and they never get to become reality. Recently, Keith Mann and Dynamic Search Partners put together an event that raised over $22k for children for Uncommon Schools. The goal for Keith Mann is quite simple. He wants everyone to have an even playing field and he wants everyone to have a chance to succeed and live the life they have always wanted.
If someone has the talent, it should not go hidden and it should not go unnoticed. It should be protected, taken care of, and given everything it needs to nourish, blossom, and grow. He wants low-income students to graduate from college. They should not be defined by how much their parents have in their bank accounts. It should be a level playing field where everyone gets a chance to do something with their lives. With Keith Mann, Dynamic Search Partners, and Uncommon Schools working together, anything is possible for these students.
These funds will go toward student testing for the 2014-2015 school year at a new school opened by the charter school. They are all about giving children the chance to succeed. After that, it is up to them to take the ball and run with it. However, because of their situation, they are highly motivated. They want to work that much harder to show they belong and prove they belong. They will be judged by their grades, their hard work, and their tireless devotion.
