I am considered a reformer of the education sector; Betsy DeVos. Ever since I joined college at Calvin College I was involved in the school politics and politics have been part and parcel of my life ever since. For more than 30 years I have been at the forefront of leading several political campaigns, political action committees, as well as political organizations. For six years I was the Chairperson of the Republican Party in Michigan. The political blood runs in my family as my husband Dick DeVos is also involved in politics and in 2006 Dick was nominated the Michigan Governor of the Republican Party.
We not only take part in the political world, but we are also involved in the business world which we have also been successful. We are at the forefront of looking for innovative solutions to problems. I Betsy have been the Chairperson of a privately owned organization known as Windquest Group. Windquest multi-national organization is a company that deals with clean energy, manufacturing as well as investing in technology. Together with my husband Dick DeVos we established the organization in 1989. Dick DeVos has been the President of Amway as well as the Orlando Magic NBA franchise. I have been working with a non-profit organization to deliver a wide range of services to the United States of America. Some of the organizations include our family foundation; Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. I have been a member of several other organizations among them; Kids Hope USA, Mars Hill Bible Church, Foundation for Excellence in Education, as well as the DeVos Institute for Arts Management which have their operations at Kennedy Center.
Recently an interview was conducted by philanthropic and the interview went down as listed below.
The Philanthropic asked how I felt about the progress in the education sector and is a pioneer and also an advocate for a quality public education I told them how optimistic I was. To date, there are over 33 public education facilities with private choice options in over 17 States. More than 250000 students benefit from the quality education. Philanthropic asked what interested me to be part of the movement since its establishment and I told them the interest was not on a particular issue. Instead, Dick and I visited the Potter’s House Christian School and saw how the parents were struggling to keep their children in the school we were moved to help some of the parents pay the tuition fee for their children. It has been my duty to ensure that all parents regardless of their location have the opportunity to choose the best school for their children as the students realize their God-given credible.
