Patti-Jeanne Ryan Biederman ’76

Patti and her husband, Scott Biederman ’75 have been co-owners of Biederman’s Deli and Pub and the Chase Street Market on Plymouth’s Main Street for the past 35 years. While a student earning her B.S. in Physical Education, Patti served as co-chair of the Miss PSC Pageant and was an active member of the Delta Zeta Sorority. She has continued service to her alma mater throughout her life as an alumna and local resident.

Patti was active in the campaign to raise support for the Silver Cultural Arts Center, the Silver and Gold effort to renovate the soccer field, the advisory committee to develop a new university logo, and most recently with the PSU Welcome Center Committee, part of the new Ice Arena. She also represented the local business community in the interview process for the presidential search.

As a civic leader, Patti has been active in Plymouth’s Shop Local initiative, the Main Street Program, and with the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce where she also served as president. She has been a board member for the Holderness Central School and school board representative for the Town of Holderness Budget Committee.

In 2008, Patti and Scott were honored with the Distinguished Alumni Service Award. They are sponsors of the “Biederman Zamboa,” which made its debut in November 2010 at the new Plymouth State University Ice Arena.

Yet the accomplishment Patti is most proud of is that of mom to her daughter, Kerri, who works as a senior communications associate at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and her son, Bryan, an ’07 Plymouth State University graduate and co-owner of Poleish Sport Outdoor Games.
