David de la Fuente
David is well-known for his company, Fountain Glass, which he started in Kansas City on his own and employs more than 30 people. He attended North Kansas City High School and developed an appreciation for higher education later in life. He loves travelling, golfing, and cheering on Kansas City ball clubs. His family is his greatest accomplishment and that pride extends into the work he does for WdS.
“The kids we meet are exceptional. It brings me a ton of personal fulfillment to meet an outstanding student and be able to contribute to their dreams of pursuing higher education. Personally, I look for the students who have demonstrated personal initiative and who are active in their communities. I want to support the kids who are continuously looking to pay it forward.”
David’s love of golf is best observed during The WdS Annual Golf Tournament. He loves hearing about how much participants enjoyed their experience and works to improve that experience year-after-year.
