Maria Pardo Huete

NEW ORLEANS – The Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans (PRC) welcomed Maria Pardo Huete to its staff as its Director of Development and Community Relations.

         “Maria has a keen understanding of what it takes to support PRC’s mission and vision of preserving New Orleans historic architecture and neighborhoods,” said Patricia Gay, executive director of PRC. “She is a great addition to our team and I am confident that PRC will benefit from her enthusiastic leadership and expertise.”

         A community activist, Huete has been an avid supporter of PRC for many years, having served as the chair of the annual Julia Jump fundraiser in 2014 and 2015. Prior to her new role at PRC, Huete most recently served as the President of the Junior League of New Orleans, a 2,200 member women’s training organization committed to promoting volunteerism and improving communities. The Junior League was integral in the history of PRC, having first organized the nonprofit as a community group of individuals involved in preservation and urban planning, reps said. Huete holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Loyola University New Orleans.

         “I am honored to have the opportunity to join an outstanding team and to build on the momentum they have already created at the PRC,” said Huete. “New Orleans would not be the city we love today without the past successes of the PRC, so I am excited to start this new chapter, and to maintain support for the city’s rich architectural legacy.”

         PRC was founded in 1974 to promote the preservation of New Orleans’ historic architecture by expanding the constituency that understands the economic, cultural and aesthetic importance of historic preservation, and by involving citizens in preservation projects and services that enhance living in New Orleans.
