Keith and Keely Mann Make a A Difference
We all have the power to impact the world. It does not depend on how big or small your impact is but I do believe we all have the power. As a recent college graduate, I often wonder how I can impact the world. I struggle from day to day on if my impact will be heard or felt. One day it dawned on me that my impact doesn’t have to always be large or something you see on television or read about in books. Instead, if I can impact the life of one child or one student then my impact can go just as far away.
Earlier this year Keith Mann decided that they wanted to make a difference in the lives of students in Brooklyn, New York’s Uncommon Schools. The school was initially founded with the intent of making sure that students who came from low-income families would have the opportunity to not only attend college but seize educational opportunities that will impact them in their professional lives. This difference comes in the form of a scholarship.
Keith Mann has launched a brand new scholarship. The scholarship asks students to simply write a 1,000 word essay on how attending college will help them reach their professional goals. Keith is eager to identify the community’s next top leaders and in order to do that they created this scholarship in hopes of being able to invest into the lives of those who may in some way come back and use their professional goals to help their community.
As you can see there are still some awesome people in the world.
