Sarah Treser recently was selected to receive the Harvard Prize Book by the Harvard Club of Western Pennsylvania.

'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.

Noteworthy: Treser recently was selected to receive the Harvard Prize Book by the Harvard Club of Western Pennsylvania. The Prize Book is awarded to an outstanding student in a junior class who displays excellence in scholarship and high character combined with achievement in other fields. North Hills High School gifted teacher Regina Moorby and school counselor Nicole Weber nominated Sarah.

Quote: “I am thrilled to receive the Harvard Book Award, and I appreciate Ms. Moorby and Ms. Weber for nominating me. I would specifically like to thank Ms. Moorby for working with me over the past two years as my educational adviser to advance my skills in school and in extracurricular activities. Additionally, had it not been for my parents and siblings' encouragement of good studies, I would not be the driven person I am today.”
