A Little Bit About Keith
Keith Ingram’s story begins with his commitment to community service.
For the past 30 years, Keith has devoted much of his time and energy to improving the lives of our friends and neighbors.
As a businessman, citizen and public servant, he has worked diligently to improve the Arkansas Delta. As a former mayor of West Memphis and in the state legislator, Keith has earned a reputation for his ability to cut through government red tape to provide his constituents with better results.
Keith is vice president of Razorback Concrete, a family business that has created jobs in 15 cities. In his role as a small business owner, he has long dealt with the responsibility of having to sign the front of a check – not just the back. Keith took his knowledge of balancing a business budget to the state capital, where he has helped to balance our state’s budget, as well.
As a citizen, Keith has served his community as a member of the First United Methodist Church, the Chamber of Commerce, and as a board member for eight different organizations. He is a past member of the Dean’s Circle for the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture and Mayor AC Wharton’s Blue Ribbon Panel on the Regional Medical Center in Memphis. Keith was a founding member of the Arkansas Delta Council, which worked to promote economic development in Eastern Arkansas.
He has a long list of honors and accomplishments. In 2011, the Arkansas Hospital Association presented Keith with their prestigious Statesmanship Award in recognition of his efforts to secure additional funding for hospitals throughout Arkansas. In some cases, that funding made the difference in some rural hospitals keeping their doors open. In 2009, Keith was a co-sponsor of legislation to create a statewide trauma system. He was named Legislator of the Year by the Arkansas Coalition Against Sexual Assault (2011), twice honored by the Arkansas Municipal League with the Distinguished Legislator Award (2009, 2011) and received the West Memphis Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year award (2002). He is a past chairman of Crittenden Regional Hospital and was named Public Health Hero in 2009 by the Arkansas Public Health Association.
Keith, 56, is a life-long resident of West Memphis and a graduate of the University of Mississippi.
