Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Makes Kids Her First Priority

Recently appointed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and her husband Dick have given away millions of dollars of their massive fortune to several charitable causes.

The couple talks the talk and they walk the walk. Much of their giving reflects their strong political and religious beliefs. Before she became Trump’s Education Secretary, she was at the forefront of Michigan education initiatives. The DeVoses are huge proponents of charter schools and the voucher program. They believe that children are entitled to receive a good education regardless of race, ethnicity or socioeconomic background. Read more about their foundation at

The Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation show that the doled out nearly $10 million for a variety of charities and causes. All total, about 26% of the DeVoses donations go toward education. Recently, the foundation funded former CNN anchor Campbell Brown’s The Partnership For Education with $400,000. The nonprofit helps children of limited means. DeVos has also given $150,000 to the Success Academy Charter School.

Betsy DeVos says it was always her goal to help all children secure a better education. After she graduated from college, she wasted no time studying the state’s educational system. “There were a lot of cracks and a great deal of things I saw was unfair,” said DeVos.

Betsy DeVos, like her husband, came from a background of wealth and influence. Her father was the billionaire industrialist Edgar Prince. Her husband, Dick, is the son of Amway founder Richard DeVos. Although both lived privileged lives, they learned the value of paying it forward at a very young age.

DeVos has always been a big player in Michigan politics. Before her appointment with the Trump campaign, she was the chairperson of the state of Michigan board of education. She also played a huge role in her husband’s 2006 gubernatorial run to unseat incumbent Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Although the race grew close in the last weeks, DeVos lost by 8 points.

DeVos says she will continue to give through her foundation as long as the need is there. In her role as Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos vows to continue to make education accessible for all Americans. Read more about her philanthropy at

How Keith Mann Is Helping Young Students

As parents reflect on the future of their children, they know that it is their duty to help them to be a little more successful than they were. But sometimes, that is very difficult to accomplish. College can be expensive. It may be that many parents cannot afford to put their children through college. However, in the United States, those who work hard can get ahead. That is why Keith Mann is offering a scholarship to those who work hard. One student every year who has a lot of potential and has exhibited a pattern of diligence will receive a boost in life, ensuring that they will have a bright future.

The scholarship that Mann has established is for the Uncommon Charter High School. The school is very pleased with it. It guarantees that at least one of their students will be able to go on to acquire a Bachelor’s Degree. In an effort to find the best student, those who apply are challenged to write a 1000 word essay about their future endeavors and what they plan to accomplish in the world of business. Ensuring that these students know what the value of their education and how an education will help them, they are assigned to write about what a college education will do to assist them in their business endeavors.

Keith is a philanthropist. This means that the core of his identity is related to promoting and enhancing the well-fare of other people. He wants others to be able to reach their potential. Even if he cannot give everybody a scholarship, he still wants all of these students to find potential in themselves.

That is basically what Mr. Mann has spend his career laboring for. In his daily life, he is the CEO and founder of Dynamic Search Parters. He hopes to share his success with other people.
