The name Betsy DeVos has become one we are all aware of after she was appointed the U.S. Secretary of Education in 2017, but I myself have been aware of the work Mrs. DeVos has been completing for a number of years across the fields, of philanthropy, education reform, business, and politics. I believe Betsy DeVos has been inadvertently preparing for her current role for a number of years as I have followed closely the many excellent programs she has developed for those seeking to make sure a zip code is not the only way a child and their family determine the standard of education an individual receives; in the creation of high quality school choice and school voucher programs that have moved out of her native state of Michigan and across the U.S. I believe Betsy DeVos should be applauded for the improved chances of receiving a first class education Betsy DeVos has given families across the nation.

I believe there is more to the life of Betsy DeVos than just educational programs as she has proven herself to be a successful business leader and an avid political supporter and commentator. Reading about the history of Betsy DeVos I was pleased to see her political career began in college and was developed as she became the Chair of the Michigan Republican Party; she also served on the Board of the Kennedy Center for the Arts after being appointed by President George W. Bush. As a business leader Betsy and Dick DeVos work together to fund new investment opportunities through their Windquest Group, which backs innovative new companies developing boxed water and green energy options that are supported at all levels by Betsy DeVos.
