Dick DeVos Continues His Fight For U.S. Education Reform

I have been aware of the name Dick DeVos since his days as the head of the Orlando Magic NBA team and later his leadership of the AmWay Group. I have always been impressed with the way DeVos conducts business, but recently his philanthropic work has made him an even more impressive person in my eyes. As always I look out for any articles giving me information on the lives of Dick DeVos and wife Betsy, which I recently found in the form of an interview with Betsy in Philanthropy Roundtable. The commitment made by Dick and Betsy DeVos to education reform across the U.S. is nothing short of staggering as the couple have continued to fund programs centered on school choice far from their home in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Not only do Dick and Betsy fund the political campaigns to install these programs in each state, but shocked me with the revelation they also fund advertising campaigns designed to make people aware of the coming deadlines revolving around the introduction of school voucher schemes. For Betsy and Dick DeVos this seems to have become more than just a program to fund, but I believe has become their passion.

As I stated earlier I first became aware of Dick DeVos when he was the President of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise, the arrival of the DeVos family saw a period of great success for the basketball team I love.  Dick DeVos has a global view on life that sees him provide funding for students from third world nations who wish to enter the world of business, I was pleased to see the establishment of the Dick and Betsy DeVos Scholarship at the Thunderbird School of Global Management become a reality in 2008, according to Wikipedia.
