Dirk Bloemendaal ’76
Dirk Bloemendaal ’76 has wrapped up a 38-year career as a public policy advocate for Amway Corporation, representing the company and its independent distributors on the state and local public policy levels. He worked in Amway’s government affairs department, part of the company’s legal division, in nearly all the state capitols (his favorites were Sacramento, Olympia, Boston and Austin). He and his wife Jill live in Holland, and their two sons and their families are in the immediate area, both sons Pat and Tim being Hope grads, along with Pat’s wife Kara. Each family has a young son and daughter. Dirk is looking for new challenges, to keep the light shining brightly.
