Deanne is a long time resident of Cranberry Township since 1995, where she and her husband, Jim, have raised their twin boys, 2016 SV graduates, and her youngest son, currently a junior at SV.  Deanne has recently started a new career as a Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams.  She is passionate about her community and the CUP and has participated in the softball tournament on the Hunters Creek South team for 15 years.

Rebecca has deep roots within the Cranberry Community.  After moving here in 1978, Rebecca graduated from the Seneca Valley School District and has gone on to raise three children, Ethan, Emma, and Luke who have also graduated from Seneca Valley.  While her children were in school, Rebecca stayed very involved.  Whether it was coaching with SVJFAC, chairing various committees at the elementary and middle schools, stepping in as a team mom, serving as President of the Women's Volleyball Boosters, running concessions for Track & Field, or planning the Annual Cross Country Turkey Chase, she was always happy to give back to the Seneca Valley Community.  Now that she and her husband, Dave, are empty nesters, Rebecca is excited to embrace her role with the Cranberry CUP.  Her love for volunteering is taking a new form as it transitions to the broader Cranberry Community, but she knows that her work will help positively impact the palce she calls home.
