NonProfit Spotlight – New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation


Maricarmen Huelga Aldana is the President of the NOHHF Board of Directors. She is passionate about education as the key to greater opportunities and societal change, and a strong believer of mentorship as a tool for investing in future leaders. As the Immediate Past President, Ileana Suquet is a stalwart supporter of the Foundation’s mission. Meeting these talented students has been a life-altering experience for her and cemented her belief in the benefits of a good education.


Mission: The NOHHF’s mission focuses on identifying and selecting local Hispanic students who excel academically and are financially in need to attend private and parochial high schools. They also assist high achieving public school seniors with financial aid for their first year in college. By partnering with local organizations, the Foundation hopes to include a mentoring program to offer college guidance, summer internships, and help for those students interested in the health care industry.

Pan-American Life Insurance Group is a proud sponsor of the New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation.
