The Story Behind the Scholarship
Ingram started his career in the oil industry as an inspector with Saybolt Inc. and then moved onto Torco Energy, Coastal Trading, and eventually John W. Stone, where he and his colleague, Victor Brossette, made JW Stone a worldwide company. Ingram was a mentor to many traders and was always there for guidance for the younger guys.
Ingram was known for his large stature but his nickname, "Pooh," truly defined this man's heart. Ingram was a big teddy bear who gave more than he ever took back and touched the lives of more people than he will ever know. He was a great man and a great husband who idolized his wife, Pat.
Ingram was truly a teddy bear and kids migrated to him because of his incredible smile and infectious laugh. He constantly gave every child his love and affection.
