Now Entering Russ's World
Kinds in New York City have so many educational options that they almost cannot keep up with them. There are a lot of charter schools throughout the city that are helping kids get a better education, and Keith Mann has contributed a lot to these schools in the past. Keith has a passion for education, and he puts his money where his mouth is. Now, he has a new scholarship that will help kids who cannot afford college.
Keith is calling it the Scholarship for Professional Achievement, and it is for one of the kids going to charter schools in Brooklyn. There is a large set of schools in the area that are giving kids chances to get their education, and these teachers are constantly preaching that kids can go to college. Money becomes an issue, and now that problem can be solved with Keith’s scholarship.
Keith’s scholarship is a chance for one kid in Brooklyn to get money for school, and they will receive $5000 for four years of college. That is $5000 a year that can be used for anything that the kid needs. The kids that are already very close to get into school can use this scholarship to start paying for it, or they can use it for special opportunities when they have them in school. There are so many kids that could use this money, and Keith wants as many kids as possible to apply for the scholarship.
Keith Mann started his own company to help with recruiting in New York, and he has made his fortune in part because he had a great education. He know that all kids have the same chances that he had, but he thinks that he had can use his own money to help kids get a better start in life.
Too many kids get left behind in schools in New York, and Keith wants to prevent kids from getting left behind by giving them a scholarship that helps them make their way to college. Grades are only part of the issue, and Keith is helping kids get over the money hurdle.
