The Gazelle Foundation is pleased to announce that Kippi Griffith has joined the team as executive director.  Kippi has an undergraduate degree from the University of Texas and  MBA from St. Edward’s University.  Before joining the Gazelle Foundation, Kippi served as director of admissions and financial aid at St. Gabriel’s School, associate VP of Alumni and parent programs at St. Edwards’s, and was a director at the McCombs School at the University of Texas at Austin.    “We are very excited to have Kippi come on to guide the Gazelle Foundation forward,” stated Gilbert Tuhabonye, Gazelle Foundation chairman and co-founder.  “Her experience, energy, and leadership will extend our success in bringing clean water to the people of Burundi.”  Kippi first came to the Gazelle Foundation as a volunteer through our development committee.  As the Foundation moved through its search process with some strong candidates, it became clear that she would make a great choice as executive director.  For a ‘gentle’ entry in to all things Gazelle Foundation, Kippi’s first efforts will be to work with the Run for the Water team and ensure another great race for 2016.
