A Namesake

Board Community

King Harris describes the origin of his son John's name.

My son is on the board. A little fact about my son that I don’t think other board members know: why is his first name John? His first name John is because in 1970, I went with John and Terry Neff and their little baby Johnny on a trip to Burgundy, and I kind of helped take care of this little boy. And I always loved that experience, and I had great regard for John. So when we had our son in 1976, I named him John. And so predictably at our 50th anniversary gala, John Neff was here and I introduced them to John Harris. And I told John Harris, "This is the man you're named after." So here the MCA had more than a little effect on our family, to put it mildly.
