Recently, Keith Mann collaborated with Uncommon Schools to offer scholarships for professional achievement. Uncommon Schools is a New York City-based nonprofit charter management organization. The partnership is aimed at offering a scholarship opportunity to a graduating senior every year in one of Uncommon School’s Brooklyn high school.
