NEW YORK, March 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Keith Mann and Dynamics Search Partners held a fund raising event for Uncommon Schools at the Standard Hotel Beer Garden. Members of the financial services community joined together to raise over $22,000 for the Uncommon Schools.

The goal of the Dynamics Search Partners and Uncommon Schools' relationship is to create an on-going and meaningful platform for Dynamics Search Partners to assist students in learning tactical and practical skills that will help them achieve success in college and beyond. Keith Mann supports their innovation and commitment to academic excellence at the high school level and looks forward to working closely with the students this year, and for years to come.

"We are excited to be working with Uncommon Schools," said Keith Mann. "We have had a tour of the schools, programming and even sat in on classes and meetings with seniors.  It was inspiring to see how motivated these students are to enter college. Students are eager to learn about how best to position themselves for college, internships and future careers."
