Betsy DeVos Uses Classical Wisdom to Guide Her

Betsy DeVos serves as the role model that America’s young girls desperately need. Today, the girls look up to pop stars such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rhianna, and Taylor Swift. These women do not serve as good role models. They promote sexual promiscuity, slander, malice, gossip, and public vengeance. You can look into the lives of our young girls and see this dark influence upon their hearts. However, Betsy DeVos does not promote any of these things, in fact, she promotes the characteristics that make people strong and productive citizens.


Betsy DeVos shows why every young girl should start well in their younger years and lay a good foundation during their time at school. Betsy had the privilege of attending school at the Holland Christian High School in her hometown of Holland, Michigan. She also would receive a business economics degree from her Alma Mater, Calvin College. These would be the springboard she needed to advance in life. While a strong foundation does not guarantee success for our young girls, it certainly increases their chance of making a difference in this dark world.


Betsy DeVos also shows why young girls should promote and advocate for their values. Today, young girls follow their pop star role models and just take to Twitter and Facebook to complain. Rather than blatting, they should go out there and change things. Betsy did this by joining the Republican Party and serving in office. Betsy served as the Republican National Committeewoman from 1992 to 1997 for the Michigan district and as the Chairwoman of the Republican Party from 1996 to 2000, again, for the Michigan district.


Betsy DeVos landed the ultimate position she needed to advocate her values when she became the Secretary of Education for the United States of America. In this position, she could advocate for school vouchers, school choice, and even charter schools.

Betsy DeVos also shows why young girls should be generous. These first two values, starting well and getting active, made Betsy rich.


Wealth is frowned upon today by many people since many people don’t have it. What the lower class does not understand is that the wealthy give most of their money away. This is certainly true of Betsy DeVos, who through the Dick & Betsy DeVos Family Foundation that she started with her husband, has given away $139 million to worthy causes.


It is at this last point of being generous that we want to linger. The DeVos foundation has done more the promote goodness in our country than President Obama ever did. Betsy knows that society is built on five Judeo Christian and Greek virtues, and these are the virtues she strengthens through her foundation.
