My name is Elvia G. Peña and I am the Director of Hispanic Ministry. My job is to help the Hispanic community continue with their faith and help them with any means of communication. My responsibilities include working in the communities of Glencoe, Arlington, Gaylord, Hutchinson, and Lester Prairie.
I am originally from Brownsville, Texas, but have lived in Glencoe for 17 years. I have previously worked in Glencoe in two different governmental positions which have given me the opportunity to become acquainted with many people from the community and surrounding areas.
I have four children--three boys and one girl. All were born in Glencoe. Their ages range from 10 – 17 years. We, as a family, spend a lot of time together going to the mall, movies, and to many celebrations; such as, birthday parties, weddings, graduations, and especially to Quinceañeras since it is one of the many big traditions with our Hispanic culture.
My hobbies are cleaning, organizing, and listening to Spanish music. I also love to dance. I am really looking forward to working in the community and helping in any way possible.
