Greg and Kristen Hart are alumni of the OSU Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, both graduating with honors in 1979. Greg Hart’s career with John Deere led to senior management positions in the company’s international and U.S. sales branches; Kristen Hart was named Young Engineer of the Year for Kansas in 1984, working with civil and mechanical engineering firms there and in Oklahoma. They have bolstered teaching, research and outreach efforts in several OSU engineering-related advisory groups.


The Harts endowed the Greg Hart and Kristen Kollmann Hart Scholarship in 2010, which has since funded more than 40 undergraduate scholarships. They also worked with the John Deere Foundation to raise funds to update classroom equipment at OSU. The couple are founding donors of the OSU McKnight Center for the Performing Arts.
