Dick DeVos Pioneer of West Michigan Aviation Academy

Although there is constant peril with airlines and the aviation industry, the demand for well-qualified aviators is still high. And an avid aviator and educator, Dick DeVos had this essentially in mind when he established the West Michigan Aviation Academy in 2010.

WMAA charter school resides in Grand Rapids at the Gerald R.Ford Airport and does not require high-school students to pay any tuition. The West Michigan Aviation Academy not only focuses on providing students with skills in aviation, but it also employs the teaching of other educational subjects such as math, technology, science, and engineering.

Learning the full extent of all things aviation, enables the students to better break into the special facets of the aviation industry.

Another great benefit of the West Michigan Aviation Academy is that it collaborates with various colleges to provide students the option of earning early credits that can be used to advance their college education and future career in the aviation industry.

It was just last year in October of 2015 that the Academy was awarded a 150K grant from the Delta Air Foundation. The academy utilized this very generous grant to purchase a Ceessna 172 plane which now gives the academy 2 Cessnas to train their total of 550 students with.
The (WMAA) is considered one of the largest and most accredited aviation schools in all of Michigan and its vast notoriety can only be attributed to its founder Dick DeVos’s great commitment and dedication. In only 6 small years since it was initially launched, the WMAA (West Michigan Aviation Academy) has grown leaps and bounds. It continues to breed aviation movers and shakers that will someday become pioneers in aviation, just like their school’s founder, Dick DeVos.

Wengie Tries Exfoliating 6 Ways

YouTube beauty blogger Wengie tests six different exfoliating products in this video. She begins the video by emphasizing the importance of exfoliating to achieve beautiful skin.

The first method Wengie describes is a manual scrub. Products like sugar scrubs and washes containing microbeads fall into this category. She explains that this type of product should be used after you cleanse you face up to three times a week.

Next, she talks about chemical exfoliants. She notes that these often come in a variety of formulas based on skin type, including those for sensitive skin, oily skin, and dry skin and in different strengths. These products use gentle acids to melt away dead skin and dirt build-up. Wengie warns that these products are just gentler versions of spa chemical peels and that your skin may feel irritated when you first start using them. She suggests using this product as many as seven times a week after toner but about half an hour before applying moisturizer.

She suggests these products as a compromise for people with sensitive skin who like the deep peeling feeling of manual scrubs. She notes that you can use these after cleansing up to three times per week.

After that, Wengie describes peeling gels. You apply these gels to your face, let them dry, then peel them off along with all the dirt that was in your pores. She suggests using these after cleansing but before moisturizing 1-3 times a week.

The fifth method she talks about is using a face towel. The texture of the terrycloth towel scrubs dead skin out of pores gently enough for everyday use. She notes that using a clean towel for each wash is important to avoid putting dirt back onto your face.

The last method she discusses is Konjac sponges, which are made from vegetables. She suggests using one every day to gently clear pores without removing too many natural oils.
