Barbara Harvey has been a Delaware County native her entire life. In fact, she is a 32-year resident of the Marple Township community. Along with her husband, Bill, Barbara has raised two children, both of whom attended Marple Newtown schools.
During the last 31 years, Barbara has volunteered much of her time contributing to the betterment of our community. Her list of involvement is as follows: The Marple Newtown School District Strategic Planning Committee—1996 , The Marple Park & Recreation Committee—2000-2004, The Marple Ethics Committee—2000-2004, The Marple Township Zoning Hearing Board—2005-Present, The Marple Newtown School Board—2013-Present, and The Delaware County Intermediate Unit—2014-Present. When asked why she volunteered all of those hours and days on committees and boards, Barbara said, “I wanted to be involved with Marple Township, a community where I am proud to live, and if I can help with that by giving back a little bit of my time, then I think it’s worth it.”
