One business executive who is passionate about supporting his local community is Keith Mann. He has made efforts since 2013 to support an organization called Uncommon Schools. He held an event at the Standard Hotel Beer Garden where he managed to raise $22,000 in funding for students in the community to further their educational goals. He invited preeminent members of the financial services industry who alslo cared about helping the students and everyone opened their wallets. The money will go towards sponsoring academic tests that have fees for the upcoming school year.
Keith Mann partnered with an organization known as Uncommon Schools to provide the funding directly to the students. Uncommon Schools exists to help close the achievement gap that exists between high and low income students. It is not fair that low income students have so many hurdles in their way on the path to higher education. There are millions who opt out of standaradized tests like the PSAT and the AP Exam because they cannot afford to pay the necessary fees. Mann reached into his own pocket and donated $10,000 to Uncommon Schools to help students in New York City meet their needs.
The partnership between Keith’s Dynamic Search Partners goes back to the year 2013. He wanted to form a relationship full of emaning where he could make a difference in the lives of students. Keith is a big believer in building skills that help you become a successful person in life. When a person has the right tactical and practical skillset they are guaranteed to do a good job and taking exams like those Keith is sponsoring can help you get into a school where you acquire those skills. The relationship between Uncommon Schools and Keith Mann will continue into the future because he wants to foster innovation. You might even say he is committed to excellene in academics for high school students.
Keith personally toured a local charter school where he met with students and the principals. He saw with his own eyes the good that his work was doing. A real differene in the lives of some people was produced.
