Keith Mann Reaches Out To Help Some Graduating High School Seniors

There is a story behind every person who graduates from college and earns a college degree. Some of the stories are heart warming such as a single mother who somehow on a minimum wage job is able to send her child to college and help her child pay for school. While many stories of people who have graduated college and earned a degree are not life changing stories, each story is special.

 

 There are many people who go to college and earn a degree through the help of scholarships. The college expenses that are paid for by scholarships often go unnoticed because there is not a face associated with the scholarship money.
