LAFAYETTE, La. – Lafayette Education Foundation (LEF) has named Abigail Broussard Falgout as the new executive director.

Falgout, a former communication consultant, also served as a license partner at Engel & Volkers Lafayette and founding partner of Bread & Circus Provisions. She succeeds Etienna Wright, who held the post for six years.

Falgout’s hiring comes as the foundation implements a plan of strategic growth in grant programs, development and outreach.

“I’m honored to be a part of LEF’s mission as they move forward in this new chapter. Education is one of the few components of a community that affects every person at every stage of life at every socio-economic level. Supported, innovative teachers create strong, innovative citizens. I’m looking forward to supporting that kind of innovation in the classroom.”
