The career of Betsy DeVos has taken many twists and turns over the course of her life, but I believe the need this Michigan native has to help others is a major part of the reason she has been so successful in so many aspects of her life. As the wife of former AmWay group President Dick DeVos, Betsy has worked alongside her husband to source a number of ways to create a better life for people around the world; Betsy has been, in my opinion, as impressive in her political work to push forward the need for education reform as she has been in acting as a philanthropist.
I have been impressed with the work completed through The Windquest Group by Betsy DeVos, who works alongside Dick DeVos to invest in both for profit and not for profit groups; I for one have been impressed by the way Betsy DeVos has made a dedicated bid to fund new investments in Michigan to help the community she has been a part of throughout her life. Among the investments Betsy DeVos has backed are those seeking to protect the environment through the use of clean energy and boxed water, which can be used to quickly transport much needed water supplies to areas affected by disasters in a speedy and environmentally friendly fashion.
Despite the good works Betsy DeVos has completed as a businessperson and philanthropist I have always found myself looking back to her work in education as the aspect of her life that will live long in the memory. I agree with Betsy DeVos that every aspect of the education industry should be explored when trying to make sure the education provided to U.S. children is as impressive as possible; inviting both the for profit and not for profit sectors to become involved in education reform can only bear fruit for the future of the nation, in my own opinion.
After a visit to the Potter’s House School in Michigan Betsy DeVos has revealed she decided she should become involved in the education reform movement, which was not a mainstream political movement in the 1980s. I have been impressed with the way Betsy DeVos decided taking on a leadership role in the movement would be a good way of making sure the political expertise needed would always be available to those looking to create charter schools, school vouchers programs, and school choice plans across the U.S. I believe Betsy DeVos also understands the issues facing many low income families in accessing a high quality education for their children and her work to create scholarships through the Alliance for School Choice is an aspect of her work I believe should be admired by people from all sides of the political spectrum.
