Mission Statement

We come from a heritage of God, family, and country
that calls us to motivate and empower the next generation.

Just as our forebears worked hard to build a better
community for the future, we commit our leadership, resources, and efforts to
finance scholarships, establish effective relationships with institutions of
higher learning, and mentor youth.

The National Hispanic Heritage Hall of Honor
recognizes those who have used educational opportunities and natural talent to
achieve new horizons. We bring their stories to the classroom to inspire
students.

We harness the power of sport – the discipline of
conditioning, the synergy of teamwork, and the challenge of competition – to
develop personal skills, self esteem, and integrity.

We are Hispanic-Americans, and believe that every
child is worthy of encouragement, guidance, and support in his or her quest to
lead and serve.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Since 2006, the
Hispanic Sports Foundation for Education (HSFE) has pointed the way to success
by providing Hispanic youth with identifiable role models that inspire efforts
in positive directions on life's journey. We:

     Identify
and honor outstanding Hispanic men and women who have achieved distinction in
arts, athletics, business, education, military and public service. Among these
pioneers are: Henry Cisneros, boxer "Jesse" James Leija, football player & businessman Danny Villanueva, retired Ambassador Oliver P. Garza, three retired generals, and one Medal of Honor recipient.

     Maintain the
National Hispanic Heritage Hall of Honor as a place to acknowledge the remarkable
lives of our Inductees and to facilitate face-to-face communication between these
leaders and students through speaking engagements and mentorships.

     Provide financial
assistance in cooperation with participating universities and service
organizations. Since 2008, over 100 awards have been made through Project STAY and Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas.

HSFE, a 501(c)3
charitable nonprofit organization, plans to continue helping talented high school
graduates and their families realize a dream to pursue advanced degrees.
Because post-secondary education empowers young people to compete for higher
paying jobs, HSFE provides access to a better future, a resource that will
never diminish in value or be taken away.
