Dick DeVos is a prominent American businessman as well as a great author based in Michigan. Dick DeVos’ wife Betsy DeVos was interviewed about her philanthropic activities which she and Dick have engaged in, for an extended period. Betsy attended the Calvin College where she began her political life. She continued with politics and is the current Secretary of Education in the United States. Dick has also vied for the Governor position of Michigan.
Betsy stated that she was excited that approximately 250,000 students were being funded to acquire an excellent education. The movement that made it possible for the kids to learn in private-choice programs was growing, and more students are benefiting. The expansion has extended to regions like Louisiana, Arizona, Mississippi, and much more. Betsy and Dick are part of the movement, which they joined when their children reached the right age to attend school. The couple saw how some parents were struggling to have their children receive the best education and this inspired them to help out. Since then the couple has managed to help many children by donating funds and improving the learning experience.
According to me, couples should be supportive of one another just like Betsy and Dick DeVos. As a team, they have achieved a lot, and they keep on moving forward. Dick DeVos, the son of Richard DeVos, was born in Grand Rapids in 1955. Richard held the CEO position of Amway as the co-founder of the firm. The company is involved in the distribution of consumer goods. Dick started engaging in the family business when he was young. Dick together with his brother Doug used to usher guests during the Amway’s annual meetings. The experience exposed Dick to public speaking, and he acquired the confidence to face large crowds on his own. Dick had the chance to attend a public school called Forest Hills and later went to Northwood University. Dick holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration. DeVos also joined the Harvard Business School, and he has received recognition from different schools.
Dick DeVos is also a famous philanthropist. Dick serves as the President of the foundation they both started with his wife called the Dick & Betsy DeVos Foundation. The organization has donated to institutions such as Kids Hope USA, the West Michigan Aviation Academy, Grand Rapids Christian Schools and more. The couple has helped a lot of people in all sectors of life including arts, education, health and much more. Dick DeVos and Betsy DeVos have brought hope to many souls. I believe the two are destined for greater things in life.
