'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

"It's just phenomenal," said Peggy McKnight as she took in her surroundings on Saturday evening.

Hardly alone in her sentiment, more than 200 guests were in awe as they walked into the Neighborhood Academy 's new educational facility in Stanton Heights to toast a Joyful Jubilee.

The state-of-the-art campus is light, bright, and airy, with pops of soothing colors that make it easy to mistake it for a hip version of your grandmother's country club. Even more impressive? Hearing each of the graduates of this independent, faith-based high school talk about plans to pursue a higher education, continuing the academy's tradition of seeing 100 percent of its students go on to four-year colleges and universities.

Event chair Kitty Hillman, co-founders Jodie Moore and the Rev. Tom Johnson (prexy and Head of School, respectively), Jessica and Tim O'Brien, Caryn Rubinoff and Craig Dunham, Courtney and Carl Borntraeger, and Alina and Joe Massaro were among the list of patrons.
