The Meaning of the Name
Our founder, Desmond Williams, grew up in Detroit, Michigan. As a young man, he noticed a boy outside playing with matchbox cars. Desmond told the young boy how much he loved cars when he was that age. The young boy, Devin, dashed into his small apartment and came back with a tattered notebook. He told Desmond, “These are the cars I’ve drawn.” Desmond was amazed at how great an artist Devin was. His cars looked futuristic and stylish. Devin promised he would one day own a car company called Nylinka. That was over 25 years ago. Unfortunately, there is no Nylinka Motor Group. Our founder adopted Nylinka, reminding us that all children have dreams. Schools, teachers, and principals are dream catchers and dream harvesters. Their chief duty is to shepherd children to their dreams. Devin serves as a reminder that there is a Nylinka in all children, and there is a Devin in all the children.
