Finance And Education Form The Basis Of The Work Of Dick DeVos

I have always been an avid follower of the business world and have managed to make sure I stayed in touch with the work of the majority of major business leaders in the 21st century. In the U.S. one of the global business executives I have always been impressed by is Dick DeVos, the former President of the AmWay Group of direct sales companies and the current leader of The Windquest Group that handles the investments of this Michigan based business leaders; despite the success I have watched Dick DeVos enjoy as a businessperson I believe his work as a philanthropist should be ranked just as highly in the future. I first became aware of Dick DeVos when he became the head of the AmWay Group in 1993 after spending the previous two years outside the family business as the head of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise, according to Wikipedia. The range of activities Dick DeVos has taken part in as a business leader over the last three decades is even more impressive to me after I discovered a Philanthropy Roundtable interview with Betsy DeVos that explained Dick had become a member of the Michigan Board of Education by 1990, in a move that aided the arrival of school choice in the state. For myself, Dick DeVos has been an inspiration as he has shown me how to give back to the wider community at times when life may seem to be at its busiest, and made it clear to me that it is important to use my own interests to give something back to the people of the world in a similar way to that used by Dick DeVos. Over the years Dick DeVos has spent a large amount of time using a portion of his $5 billion fortune to help others, including the use of his own funds that are used to provide information on school choice and school voucher programs that may not be readily available to all. Dick DeVos does not limit himself to education reform, but has also been a major donor to arts programs provided by the Kennedy Center to the tune of over $22 million in donations; Dick made sure the Kennedy Center funding he provided also subsidized arts programs in the state of Michigan that had been hard hit by cuts following the recession of the early 21st century.

 

Securus Technologies Helps Inmates See Christmas At Home

For inmates at correctional facilities, one of the toughest times of the year is Christmas. The reason Christmas is such a tough time is because family and friends get together at home to share special moments, and the inmates cannot be at home because they are in a correctional facility.

 

In addition, many times during the Christmas holiday period family and friends do not come to correctional facilities to visit their family member or friend who is in the correctional facility. Christmas is a difficult time for many people because the season brings memories that are not happy memories.

 

While Christmas may bring sadness to some people, Securus Technologies is trying to bring joy to the lives of many inmates across the country by providing technology that allows inmates to communicate with family and friends through the use of video communication.

 

The technology by Securus Technologies allows inmates to connect with family and friends through telecommunications. The inmates can talk to their family and friends while being able to see them through video at the same time. The communication is done in real time, and the communication gives inmates the chance to see the people they care about the most during one of the most special times of the year, which is Christmas.

 

I feel that the technology developed by Securus Technologies is an awesome way of helping inmates at correctional facilities to talk to their love ones but even more importantly to be able to see their love ones. For many people at correctional facilities, the joy of being able to see and talk to love ones at Christmas can mean more than most people would ever understand.

 

Securus Technologies gives people in correctional facilities the chance to participate in Christmas activities when it would be almost impossible under any other circumstances. The video technology that Securus Technologies utilizes in correctional facilities for inmates is cutting edge technology. It is making a difference in the lives of many inmates.
