Keith Mann, the CEO of Dynamics Search Partners, held a fund-raising event sponsored by his company to raise money for Uncommon Schools. The event was held at the Standard Hotel Beer Garden, and individuals in the financial services industry were able to raise $22,000 for Uncommon Schools. The money was to sponsor student testing for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Mann states that the goal of Uncommon Schools is to make sure that low-income students can still achieve their academic and professional goals. Keith Mann has also shared that he and his company support the mission of Uncommon Schools to provide opportunities for students to attend college.
The student testing that was funded by the event at Standard Hotel Beer Garden was for the PSAT and AP testing for the inaugural school year. Mann’s company, Dynamics Search Partners had allotted $10,000 to ensure that student testing needs were met prior to the event.
Dynamics Search Partners began their partnership with Uncommon Schools in 2013. The reason for the merger was to create a substantial platform for underprivileged students to be able to attend college. Mann also wants students to learn the skills that are necessary for professional success after college.
Mann has confirmed that he is excited to working with Uncommon Schools. He says that he and his company representatives have toured the schools and have even sat in classes with the students. Dynamics Search Partners provides services to more than 200 clients every year in the United States, Asia and Europe.
