There’s great news out there for young students from Brooklyn’s Uncommon Schools program. According to a recent story in www.businesswire.com, Keith Mann, Hedge Fund Expert at Dynamic Search Partners, has just announced the creation of a new scholarship program. The Scholarship, called the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement, is a special award that will be given to one senior each year who graduates form one of the Uncommon Schools.
The award was created to help motivate and reward a student of outstanding abilities, to help them become one of the next generation of leaders in business.
Joe Frick, who is a college counselor at Uncommon Charter High School, stressed the gratitude felt by all involved at the school over this scholarship. He also mentioned that the scholarship will ensure that the student who receives the award will have the means to pay for their four-year education at college.
The mission of these schools is to help prepare lower income students for college, and to help them work towards a higher level of achievement. Today the Uncommon Schools organization manages a growing network of 44 charter schools, which serve a student population of over 14,000, in grades K through 12.
