For February, we are pleased to announce the newest member inducted into the SV All-Star Club, Mr. Dennis Moyer, site supervisor for Seneca Valley’s contracted security team. 

The SV All-Star Club is an awards program developed by the District to express our gratitude to Seneca Valley classified employees (administrative assistants, paraprofessionals, maintenance, cafeteria), bus drivers and security guards who are often the unsung heroes of our schools. We recognize a new member of this elite all-star club each month. 

Officer Jason Young, Seneca Valley Safety and Security Supervisor said, “I asked Dennis to become the site supervisor for our contracted security team shortly after I was hired by the school district. From that day, I’ve never had to second guess, ask or be concerned that an event wasn’t covered by security. Dennis is the type of supervisor that works with his team to ensure that every event from a Saturday SAT event to a 400-person wrestling tournament is covered with adequate security staff. Rarely will you ever see him during the school day in the office sitting at his desk. One of his sayings is ‘I won’t ask my team to do something I wouldn’t do.’ That could be an all-day swim meet or standing in the pouring rain to direct traffic.” 

Mr. Moyer is an Army veteran who served in Panama and is a retired juvenile corrections officer that worked in several maximum-security juvenile detention centers for over 20 years. In his free time, Mr. Moyer enjoys kayaking and participating in mock combat tournaments.

Officer Young added, “Dennis is well deserving of this recognition. He maintains constant foot patrols checking on each of his team multiple times to know their concerns as well as what’s going on in their lives.  He will humbly tell you the team makes him look like a good leader, and he has a great team. As an SRO, I have seen some great security teams and others just get the job done, but no one gels together quite like this group.”
