Allan & Glendy Marroquin: Allan graduated from the 2015 BVSA class. In that year he was both our varsity MVP as well as leading scorer. But because of his development as a young man, and his heart for Christ and for his own community, we knew we wanted to bring him onto our team.
Allan has a promising career as a soccer coach, and as a leader of young men. He now works for BVSA full-time in both capacities. He is also the head coach, and founder, of our girls program, "Las Rinas". Allan is married to his high-school sweetheart, Glendy, and they are expecting their first child in May of 2018.
Glendy serves at BVSA as a teacher, and also as an assistant coach to Las Rinas girl's team. She is currently studying at the University on the weekends. When she graduates, she will become one of the first ever from the entire village of Buena Vista to graduate college! Allan and Glendy have a daughter named Stacy.
