A Little Bit About Keith

Keith Ingram’s story is one of commitment to community service.

For the past 35 years, Keith has devoted much of his time and energy to improving the lives of our friends and neighbors.

Through several roles including a businessman, citizen, and public servant, Keith has worked diligently to improve the Arkansas Delta. In his service in the state legislature and as former Mayor of West Memphis, he has earned a reputation for an ability to cut through beauracratic red tape to assist all citizens.

As the former vice president of Razorback Concrete, a family business that created jobs in 16 cities, Keith knows the role small businesses play in our community. He understands the responsibility of signing 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 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.

Keith has a long list of honors and accomplishments. He has worked to secure millions of dollars in grants for communities throughout the 24th District. Keith led the successful effort to keep open the I-55 bridge in Memphis. 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 was named Public Health Hero in 2009 by the Arkansas Public Health Association.

Keith, 63, is a life-long resident of West Memphis, a graduate of the University of Mississippi and is married to Robin Lipton Ingram.
