Betsy has always been very active in her community, formerly chairing the “American Federation for Children” and “The Philanthropy Roundtable” on their board of directors. Some of the other local boards she has served on are, “Art Prize,” “American Enterprise Institute,” “Foundation for Excellence in Education,” and the “DeVos Institute for Arts Management at the University of Maryland.” Betsy is currently chairman of the Windquest Group, this is a private group, that operates multi-companies investing in technology, manufacturing and clean energy. She and her husband founded this firm in 1989, her husband, Dick Devos was the former president of Amway and the Orlando Magic NBA franchise.

On February 7, 2017, it was confirmed, after nomination by newly sworn in President Trump, that Betsy Devos would serve as the 11th U.S. Secretary of Education. She seems the perfect choice, after spending almost three decades as a child advocate and parental voice. One of her passions being that all children receive a quality education, no matter what there life’s status be, wealthy or poor, does not matter, all children deserve an equal start when it comes to education.

Betsy’s interest in the public school system began at a young age, as she watched her own mother, a public schoolteacher; and then later, when she sent her own children to school. She has served as an in-school mentor for at risk children for 15 years in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area schools. Working hard to create educational choices for children in 25 states and the District of Columbia. Visit Betsy’s profile on twitter.com.

I believe, with her past history of being a philanthropist, and her love for educating and creating a better education system for all children, she was a good choice for U.S. Secretary of Education and will serve her term well.
