Glenna’s passion stemmed from childhood as a recipient of Young Life. She thought of ways to enhance the role of mentor and become more involved in the lives of youth.

Glenna has also been known to play a game of pokemon or two!
When asked what she liked about the youth, Glenna responded “I love their energy! I am here for y’all and these kids”.

I will see the goodness of the Lord

be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
