Dick and Betsy are both a couple and business partners who have invested most of their time doing their best in changing policies, institutions and helping the society, especially in education-related areas. Their political influences have played a great role in inducing the changes and reforms, not forgetting their wealthy status too.
The aviation school is at Gerald R. Ford International Airport and it has thrived with over 500 students coming from seven countries to get to the airport. The school is tuition-free and operates with a per-student allowance which is from the state just like other Michigan charter schools. The school has three classes that have graduated so far and the last class’s average SAT score was above the statewide average score making the school be listed top 10 Countrywide. The Devos couple has donated funds and given non-interest loans to help in equipping and in the expansion of the school buildings.
The number of black and Hispanic students in the institution has increased considering the number of black or Hispanic people in Kent. A room is set aside for the Muslim students who wish to pray to make it crystal clear that there is no discrimination in the institution. The school has over 150 planes and it provides classes in every grade including pilot instruction, electronics, plane maintenance and history. Students who make flights by themselves wear white shirts distinguishing them from the rest of the students who wear blue shirts.
Dick’s persistence and the urge for a better tomorrow made him call the CEO of Air Tran Airways to convince him of the great fortunes that would come from improving Grand Rapid’s Airport and change the outlook of air travel in West Michigan. He invited the CEO of the inexpensive carrier into a meeting which yielded the decision to run an array of flights out of Gerald R. Ford International Airport, and Southwest bought the carrier months before Air Tran began their operations in Grand Rapids. Mr Devos had become lucky.
He has been a very supportive husband to his wife both in politics, charity work and in business. He helped his wife in her campaigns and numerous reforms she had been involved in like the expansion of the publicly funded independent schools and in providing scholarships for students in private schools while he pushed for the law that would make Michigan a free to work state for everyone where union membership was no longer a requirement during employment.
Most of his activities revolve around aviation due to his passion for aviation and business. In fact, most people call him an aviation geek and a pilot. He is a tough man who even when knocked down by any kind of challenges, he stands for what he believes in until it succeeds. Those who know him can confirm that he is a big-hearted person, very dedicated to his work and a good person to emulate. He has remarkable experience and knowledge in aviation and he has helped open doors to prosperity for many companies and individuals.
