Kansas City’s Faultless Starch/Bon Ami Company hosted a breakfast and tour of their facilities for the 2019 class of international military students at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College on Aug. 6.
Faultless Starch’s Employee Wellness Coordinator Tricia Beaham welcomed the group. Ms. Beaham is the wife of the late David Beaham, former Faultless president, former trustee of the CGSC Foundation and well-known champion of the international officer program at CGSC.
“This is the first opportunity of the academic year where the international students get to see an American business from the inside,” said Foundation President/CEO Doug Tystad who also spoke at the gathering. “David was the biggest fan and supporter of the international program at CGSC and we know he’d be proud of his company and the Foundation for continuing this traditional welcome breakfast.”
Tystad added that the Foundation is also the custodian of the David G. Beaham Memorial Fund, which is endowed by his friends and family. The fund provides support in perpetuity for the Eisenhower Award, the top award for international students presented at graduation.
During their visit, the international students had the opportunity to learn the background and history of the company and take a firsthand look at the operation. The visit to Faultless was intended not only to welcome them to the Kansas City area, but also to provide them with some insights to how American businesses operate as part of their overall experience while in the U.S. attending CGSC.
