George Hart, Jr. ’65: “Work hard and be ethical…”
George and his wife, Jonnie, at his recent high school reunion.

Q: Why did you join KA Order in the first place?

A:  I joined KA because of a recommendation of the finest person I knew other than my father. He was No. 1 when he was at Gamma Chapter during the Depression. I thought if that kind of organization was represented by people such as him, then that was the type of group I wanted to be associated with.

Q: What is your favorite memory from the chapter?

A:  I have too many good memories as a KA to pick out one as a favorite.

Q: Do you keep in touch with any brothers?

A: I keep in touch with a few but not as many as I should.

Q: Tell us about the company for which you are President.
A: The company that I founded and own, OHCO, Inc., is a textile recycling and export company. We purchase all of the textile products and waste that are produced by textile mills and garment factories, reprocess and repackage them and export them to third world countries where they are reused. We have subsidiaries in the countries of Chile and Argentina in South America and Togo in West Africa as well as our headquarters in Covington, GA. We have been in business for 45 years and, with my son and grandson, we will hopefully be in business for many more.

Q: How did your time in KA Order help to prepare you for that role?

A:  My time as a KA helped me to realize what hard work and good ethics could get you.

Q: What have you been up to since graduation?

A: I have been growing my business and family. Traveling to many strange places all over the world and visiting people with whom I do business.

Q: What would you say is your biggest accomplishment?

A: My biggest accomplishment would be having a wonderful and successful family. My two children went to LSU and they are in the process of raising their families. My son's oldest has just completed his first year at Ole Miss and is a KA there. I was given the opportunity to participate in his initiation ceremony.

 

Q: What advice would you give to future members of KA Order?
A: My advice to future generations of KAs would be to work hard and be ethical and good things will happen- both in business and in your family life.
