Imagine growing up in an environment that offers you limited opportunities. All around you are hard working people who continuously hit a financial brick wall. Those who have achieved a level of success still bump their heads against the glass ceiling that showcases an upper-level, which is continuously out of their grasp. Some of your school mates wonder if there is any point in hard work during high school if they can’t afford a higher education. It’s not a pretty picture but for many underprivileged children, this is a reality. Luckily, there are people like Keith Mann who are working to right this economic and educational wrong.

Keith Mann believes in opportunities. This shows clearly through his business, Dynamics Search Partners, which facilitates relationships between big name investors and assets. Keith also shares the belief that all hard working individuals deserve the right to a brighter future. This mentality has led to his partnership with Uncommon Schools, a free nonprivate and nonprofit charter school for underprivileged students, who are enrolled in grades k through 12. In pairing with Uncommon Schools, Mann recently began the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement.

This scholarship is awarded each year to a graduating senior enrolled at one of the Uncommon Schools throughout Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey. These students must be interested in a business degree at a 4-year university. They must also write a 1,000-word essay about how an education will be beneficial to their professional goals. The winner of the essay contest will be awarded $5,000, to be applied towards expenses at their school of choice.
