Dean Eisenberger

   Dean Eisenberger

Dean Eisenberger graduated from Plymouth Whitemarsh High School in 1982 and went on to serve his community as a police officer, township council member, and security guard at Colonial Elementary School. 

Following graduation, Dean attended Temple University and received a bachelor’s degree in police science. He began his career as a police officer in Franconia Township and after six months there, he was hired full-time in 1985 at Plymouth Township. Over 14 years, he worked his way through the ranks, serving as a patrol officer, a juvenile officer, a detective, a patrol sergeant, and lieutenant. He received the David Hancock Medal of Honor from the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 14 for rescuing a woman from a fire. 

Along with his police work, Dean has served his township by being elected to Plymouth Township Council, where he served from 2009 to 2017 and was Council Chairman from 2016 to 2017. During his time as a council member, he advocated for public safety and was instrumental in developing ordinances to control billboards and to regulate development in areas prone to sinkholes. Dean was the driving force behind obtaining many grants for the improvement of Township parks and trails without burdening the taxpayers. 

Dean is also an accomplished entrepreneur. As a police officer during the early ‘90s, he saw the need for officers to have access to computers while on the road. He co-founded the L & E Mobile Computer & Mounts company in an effort to provide officers with computers that could be docked in a car, and then removed and used in the station as well. He was awarded a patent for mobile computer U.P.S. hardware. The company grew to include 54 employees with locations in four states and a million-dollar payroll. It was later acquired by another company, and Dean remained on staff to serve as Vice President for approximately 13 years.

Dean has also run for Montgomery County Commissioner, served on the Plymouth Township Police Association, is a former Vice President for the Montgomery County Fraternal Order of Police, and served as an instructor for the Montgomery County Police Academy. He can often be seen directing traffic, helping students get on buses, or patrolling inside and outside of Colonial Elementary School, where he currently serves as a security officer. He also runs a business that rehabs older housing.

In his spare time, he collects cars and motorcycles, enjoys boating, and travels. A Plymouth Meeting resident, Dean is married to wife Theresa and has two children, Anna and Dean Jr.

Susan Moore graduated from Plymouth Whitemarsh High School in 1971 and has become a beloved role model in the community, serving as a volunteer serving students, teachers, staff, and families for more than 20 years on the Board of School Directors and many other school-related organizations.

Sue’s commitment to public education and schools started early in her career. She earned degrees from Millersville University and Temple University, and worked for many years as a teacher in both public and private schools. Her volunteer work was also school-oriented, as she served as Vice President for the Plymouth Elementary, Colonial Elementary, Colonial Middle, and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School Parent Teacher Organizations. 

She further committed to serving the Colonial School District by running for School Board, an elected position that she maintained from December 2001 to December 2023. During her time as a Board member, she held seven, one-year terms as Board President and four, one-year terms as Vice President. She was also a member of Central Montco High School Technical Career Center’s Joint Operating Committee (JOC)  from 2006 to 2016 and again from 2019 to 2023. She held the position of treasurer for several years on the JOC.

Sue led the District through several building projects, such as the renovation of Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, the renovation of Colonial Elementary School, the installation of Victory Fields and the baseball fields, and the demolition and new construction of Colonial Middle School. In addition, she was involved in negotiations for numerous contracts between the District and various employee groups, and helped to pass numerous budgets that upheld Colonial’s commitment to outstanding academics while also keeping the District’s tax increases among the lowest in the county. Her leadership never waned, even during the COVID-19 pandemic that presented numerous challenges for all public school districts. 

In addition to her School Board position, Sue has also donated her time and expertise to several other Colonial School District organizations. She has served many years on the Distinguished Graduates Organization, helping to provide recognition for countless graduates who have gone on to make a difference in their communities. She also volunteered on the Colonial School District Education Foundation Board, working to raise money to provide resources and programs to students and teachers. 

Outside of her volunteer work for Colonial, Sue has been a Board member for the Ply-Mar Swim Club for 30 years, 20 of which she served as President. In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her family and friends, and play tennis. A Plymouth Meeting resident, Sue is married to Timothy and has three children: Steven, Jessica, and Ryan.
