Betsy DeVos is a name I have known since the 1990s when she played a key role in the development of the education reform system, which continues to be seen as a major force for good in the U.S. education system. I first became aware of Betsy DeVos in the 1990s within the state of Florida when a program of school vouchers and choice was created among a range of party leaders and the leaders of the education reform movement, including Betsy DeVos; what most impressed me was the ability of Mrs. DeVos to explore the opportunities on offer for crossing party lines and gaining support from all areas of the state legislature for the programs being developed across the state by reformers like Betsy DeVos. In 2017, the work Betsy DeVos has completed in terms of education reform was finally rewarded with her appointment to the role of U.S. Secretary of Education in the Administration of Preseident Donald Trump.

The philanthropic work of Betsy DeVos has been in operation for a number of decades and I believe shows the dedication to increaxsing the community opportunities available for people across the divides of race, religion, and socioeconomic issues. Born in Holland, Michigan, Betsy DeVos has become even more impressive to me after I discovered the work she completes to aid the community of Grand Rapids, Michigan in becoming as important as possible in an education and cultural sense; Mrs. DeVos works with her husband, former AmWay Group President Dick DeVos to provide funding for a number of philanthropic activities, including the annual ArtPrize and as a major supporter of the Potter’s House Christian School, according to the Philanthropy Roundtable. I am always pleased to see the DeVos family continue their financial backing of the Potter’s House School as the institution is the school where low income families attempt to provide the best possible education regardless of the socioeconomic issues facing any family.

Across the U.S. Betsy DeVos has found a number of different ways to provide assistance for the groups and supporters of school choice and voucher system as these orograms have spread across the U.S. to more than 15 states. Betsy DeVos has spent much of the last three decades looking to help the students of the U.S. in living a better life that includes her early career working as an in school student advocate for at risk children. Despite the success of her own Prince family as industrialists and the AmWay owning DeVos family, Betsy DeVos seems to me to never have lost sight of the need to aid others in the fight to help people of all ages across the nation.
