You would be surprised to know how many children get discouraged or confused upon graduating high school. Their self-esteem is vital at this age, and it is important to push them up, support them, and stay in their corner, through all of the highs and lows. We need to let them know that anything is possible and they can achieve anything with hard work, dedication, commitment, and keeping their eye on the prize. When they become adults, they remember those that helped them, guided them, and showed them the right path. They gave them positive reinforcement, supported them, guided them, and told them they could do it. They lean on that and recall upon that when times can get tough.
Recently, there was some wonderful news announced thanks to Keith Mann. They announced the 2016 Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement. They will be working hand-in-hand with Uncommon Schools, a non-profit charter management organization, based in New York City to work on this wonderful scholarship. If you are a graduating senior at one of Uncommon Schools’ Brooklyn-based high schools, each year, you will be eligible for this.
There are so many bright minds out there, and they need to be taken care and this award allows them to be future business leaders. It will give them all of the tools they need to be successful. It shows them that someone believes in them, cares about them, and wants to see them achieve everything they have sought out to do. What better time than the present to get started and get moving with your innovative idea?
This way, right after high school, you can do whatever your heart is set out to do in the business world. You have the means, you have the support, and you feel like you truly accomplish something. This only leads to future accomplishments and future goal-setting. It teaches them that if you are the first one to go to work, the last one to leave, and work hard with no excuses, your dreams aren’t just dreams anymore. They are reality.
