At Metairie Bank, “Enriching the Communities We Serve” is more than just part of our mission statement, it’s our pledge to continue making a difference in our community.

Giving back is an essential component of what makes Metairie Bank a community bank. We’re dedicated to providing support to the communities where we live and work. We invest in the future of our communities by promoting financial literacy, health, and the arts.

 

We offer assistance to non-profit organizations and support programs that strive to better our communities and the lives of our neighbors who live in them. 

Helping to Make Home Buying Easier

We are dedicated to supporting the promotion of financial literacy. We know buying a home can feel daunting. We’re here to relieve stress by providing educational information into the home buying process. Community Development Officer Marina Manzanares lead an informational home buying workshop to help people in our community feel confident turning their dreams of buying a home into a reality.

Giving Educational Opportunities to Local Students

Our own Scott Schellhaas, VP of Mortgage and Commercial Loans is also a Board Member of Jefferson’s Dollars for Scholars. Scott and Community Development Officer Marina Manzanares presented a scholarship to Haynes Academy graduate Taylor Tarleton, who will be going to LSU.

As a community bank, we invest in the future of the communities we serve. We are proud to help provide educational opportunities for the youth of Jefferson Parish.

Metairie Bank is Happy to Support the Murphy Education & Sports Foundation 

They will host their 10th Annual Back-to-School Giveaway in July. It’s an incredible cause that provides students with the tools they need to succeed, including backpacks and school supplies.

Publisher's Note

There is an idea that most Latino immigrants who come here lack education, and thus are bound to perform jobs that require more physical abilities than intellectual ones.

The laborers usually receive a negative stigma, even though the United States society requires these types of jobs to function properly. It is important to us to remember there is dignity in any job. 

In our Líders section, we feature Mari Alejos-Puente, an entrepreneur who is succeeding in the cosmetics’ industry. She graduated from Tulane University and Xavier University and she told me how her mother and her grandmother  were part of the cleaning crews at these institutions, respectively, and how proud they were to see her obtain her undergrad and master degrees.

It is a beautiful thing when you know ladies like this mother and grandmother work hard to give a better life to their children. I wanted to mention this as a side note, because it is important to highlight their efforts, just as much as the effort of the highly skilled professionals we are featuring in our cover story.

In our cover we feature three Latin American physicians who are giving individuals a second chance in life with through their commitment and work at the Ochsner Transplant Institute.

Let his note be a reminder that Latinos, in every field, are providing their skills, talent, and sacrifices every day to make the United States a culturally and economically stronger society.
