Betsy DeVos isn’t a frivolous person by any stretch of the imagination. She’s been showcasing her fervor for hard work for years now. She attended Calvin College located in Michigan when she was still called Elisabeth Prince. People who were in her life then can back up her actions today. She’s always been an individual who has had convictions that are tough to deny. DeVos’ devotion to excellence may be a relic of her father. Her father was a highly regarded All-American businessman who instilled a strong work ethic in DeVos. DeVos’ husband has a work ethic that matches hers well. Dick DeVos has reveled in an existence that’s been just as productive and enriching. His father was one of the entrepreneurs who brought the Amway Corporation into the public eye. The younger Mr. DeVos even ran the Amway Corporation for years during the nineties and early 2000s. He realized it was time to exit the Amway Corporation in 2003.
Many people call Ms. DeVos the United States’ Secretary of Education. That would be a truthful statement as well. President Donald Trump knew that DeVos would do a lot with the position. That was his incentive to hire her for it in the first place. DeVos isn’t at all unfamiliar with the inner workings of the school system in the United States. She’s been delving into educational matters for years and years. She’s set foot inside of countless American charter schools. She’s exchanged comments with hundreds and perhaps even thousands of parents over the years, too. She has gotten in touch with so many parents who have questions that relate to school choice and their kids.
DeVos doesn’t think that it’s ever a smart idea to sit back and watch things as they come. She’s always been the kind of individual who has gone after her objectives. She proved this with the founding of the famed Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. Mr. and Mrs. DeVos introduced the not-for-profit group in the eighties. It’s been around for what seems like eons to many people. Betsy and Dick, however, have made excellent use out of it. It has received donations that have done so much to push artwork and culture in America forward. It has received donations that have helped all kinds of educational objectives.
Most people probably wouldn’t guess that DeVos has ever met a rapper named Pitbull. She’s not a musician. DeVos and Pitbull, however, are undoubtedly people who are on good terms with one another. They like to discuss the path of charter schools in the United States. They talked as a duo at a Miami school about the topic. Pitbull endorses charter schools just like DeVos does.
