Celebrating the life of Trustee Lindy Ingram


Lindy Lunceford Ingram (’84), 60, died Dec. 31, 2022. A member of the board of trustees, she also was co-owner, chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Lone Star Behavioral Health, a psychiatric hospital and the Houston area’s largest behavioral health partial hospitalization and outpatient program. In addition to her executive leadership roles, Ingram was a certified medical compliance officer and a certified instructor in nonviolent physical crisis intervention and was a member of several community and charitable organizations.

“We are heartbroken at the passing of Lindy Ingram. While on the board for only three years, Lindy made a significant impact and was an outstanding board member. She worked at it, was well prepared for meetings, and was actively engaged in the Harding family. Her love for the Lord and his church, her family, and Harding's mission was evident.”

Charles Ganus, board chairman

Ingram graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business systems analysis in 1984 and earned a Master of Business Administration in 2015, both from the University. She completed her Master of Jurisprudence from Texas A&M University in August 2022. She was added to the board of trustees in October 2019 and will be remembered for the significant influence she had on the Harding family.

“Lindy Ingram was the consummate Harding graduate,” President Mike Williams said. “Spirit-led faith, impeccable integrity and passionate love for others were hallmarks of her life. Her keen intellect and gregarious personality will be missed on the board.”

She is survived by her husband of 38 years, Nathan Ingram (’84); three children, Logan (’09), Caleb (’10) and Carter (’16); her mother, Nancy Lunceford; and nine grandchildren.

Recently, members of the board of trustees each shared with us their favorite Bible verses for a future project. The Ingrams reflected on Matthew 16:18.
