Keith Mann of Dynamics Search Partners held an fundraiser for Uncommon Schools in March of 2015 at the Standard Hotel Beer Garden. A number of powerful individuals in the financial services community came together to raise more than $22,000 for Uncommon Schools. The money went to sponsor student testing for the 2014-2015 school year at a brand new high school that was opened by Uncommon Charter School.
Keith Mann states that Uncommon Schools exist to close the achievement gap between students. He also shares that the school helps to prepare low-income students for college. Keith Mann and his company, Dynamics Search Partners, are in full support of the mission of Uncommon Schools, and will work toward providing high school graduates with the opportunity to attend college.
Uncommon Schools held the event to open its new high school in Brooklyn, New York. The student testing that was funded includes AP and PSAT testing for the inaugural school year. Before the fundraiser, Dynamics Search Partners had already given $10,000 to help ensure that the testing needs of every student were met.
Dynamics Search Partners started working with Uncommon Schools in 2013. The goal of the partnership is to create an effective way for students to learn the practical skills that will assist them in achieving success in college and in the workforce. Mann looks forward to working closely with high school students for years to come.
Mann reiterated that he and his team were excited to be working with Uncommon Schools. He says Dynamics Search Partners sat in on meetings and classes with high school seniors and witnessed how motivated the students were to enter college and pursue a variety of internships and careers.
