Betsy DeVos Brings About A Change In The Education Community

I have been aware of the work of Betsy DeVos for around 30 years, ever since she took her first tentative steps into the world of education reform that has pushed the Holland, Michigan born former Chair of the State Republican Party into the spotlight as the U.S. Secretary of Education. Mrs. DeVos first came to my attention over 30 years ago when she was one of the first wealthy financial donors to step forward and become a leader of what those of us who were involved with education reform at the time saw as a minority in terms of political opinion; however, I was always pleased with the understanding of politics Betsy DeVos has shown over the course of her life and is said to have begun during her time studying at Calvin College.

Betsy DeVos has been a major success in almost every aspect of her life from the outset and I believe has shown her ability to adapt to different environments by taking on role with nonprofit groups, the Michigan Board of Education, and as a business leader. In 1989, Betsy DeVos worked with her husband, Dick, the former AmWay group President, to create The Windquest group; the success of The Windquest Group has recently been seen with the company being a major part of the work of the couple as they have invested in various different startup companies in the Grand rapids, Michigan area they call home and beyond. The Windquest group is also responsible for the management of a number of the groups developed by Betsy DeVos, including the West Michigan Aviation Academy that has been developed to provide a charter school experience providing an education aimed at developing new members of the aviation industry from an early age.

The newly installed Secretary of Education has always had an interest in education and politics, a combination I feel is impressive as they have prepared for the role that will define how Mrs. DeVos is viewed in the future. As a two time Chair of the Michigan Republican Party and a former choice of President George W. Bush for a role on the Board of the Kennedy Center for the Arts I feel the mother of four is more than prepared for her role in the President’s Administration; I also believe her work as an advocate for children in Michigan public schools shows the care and support the Secretary of Education has developed for children all over the U.S. This care for all has been shown, in my opinion, in the fact Mrs. Betsy DeVos has been willing to provide funding for campaigns to make sure all students are given access to school choice and school voucher systems no matter where they live in the U.S.
