Naomi Rubin DeVeaux, German, Class of 1992

DeVeaux worked for Friends of Choice in Urban Schools (FOCUS), a D.C. public charter school board that drives reform through protecting the autonomy and increasing the quality of D.C.’s public charter schools. DeVeaux hoped to educate poor, minority, and disenfranchised youth at high levels so they could equally compete for spots at the best workplaces and colleges. “[This] is at the heart of building a sustainable society,” she says.
