Bond & Devick Wealth Partners

RJ and Teresa Devick of Bond & Devick Wealth Partners have been a source of inspiration and support for Adams Thermal Academies from the start. Early in our history, when nobody else knew about the commitment that Mike and Kim Adams made to keep the schools in Hosanna and Ottoro open, RJ and Teresa were strong advocates and faithful supporters of Adams Thermal Foundation. After adopting from Ethiopia, RJ and Teresa engaged in many charitable causes on behalf of Ethiopia, one of which was the schools. Since Adams Thermal Foundation was launched in 2013, RJ and Teresa and the staff at Bond & Devick have helped with a number of projects including the acquisition of a brand-new truck to deliver food to Ottoro and the equipping of science laboratories at the new Hosanna High School. Bond & Devick staff, along with the help of friends, Ken and Mary Helvey of Maple Grove, MN, also held the first-ever Ugly Christmas Sweater event to promote Child Sponsorship at the schools. Every charitable organization needs supporters and volunteers. But RJ and Teresa have been true friends and we are so grateful for their passion and partnership in Ethiopia!

Hands-on Learning Inspires Students

Published Mon, Mar 11, 19. Written by Scott Chleborad.

When the high school building in Hosanna was finished, RJ and Teresa Devick, of Bond & Devick in the Twin Cities, made a generous donation to the Adams Thermal Academy. Their gift provided equipment for all the science labs in the school, and offered its students an opportunity rarely found in Ethiopian secondary schools – hands-on learning in a lab setting. As opposed to just listening to lectures, or reading about science projects and experiments, Hossana students are now able to do projects and conduct experiments to supplement their classroom work.

Enter Henok Tadesse Ergogo, a junior at Hossana High School with a passion for science. Henok took to the new science lab like a duck to water, and has completed a number of projects using scientific principles and found objects and trash. His projects have inspired other students and staff at the Academy and impressed the ATF staff on three different trips in the past year. In one case, Henok built a functioning hand crank electrical generator from an old loudspeaker, a pulley and a piece of wood. Another project is a Bluetooth enabled remote control car built from plastic and some wheels that he found. Most recently, he built a wind powered electrical generator from an old fan.

Henok, with his enthusiasm and innovation is a perfect example of the remarkable potential that exists in so many students who would not otherwise have a chance to learn and grow. Thanks to RJ and Teresa and their support, Henok and hundreds of other Hossana students have the opportunity to discover their passions and work towards a promising, productive future in the sciences.
