Young Achiever: Danielle Deiseroth
Residence: Mt. Lebanon
Family: Parents, Daniel and Dianne
School: Senior at Mt. Lebanon High School
Activities: Deiseroth is a varsity cheerleader, a student council officer and a member of the school's speech and debate team. Outside of school, she enjoys reading, cooking and skiing.
Noteworthy: Mt. Lebanon commissioners selected Deiseroth to serve as a junior commissioner for the spring semester. Junior comissioners attend the commission meetings and act as liaisons between the commission and students.
Background: Deiseroth applied after hearing about the position from friends and said she has always had an interest in local government. One idea she has for her new role is to start a blog to get a “virtual presence” on the commission.
Quote: “At least to students, things that seem really minute to us like parking or community fields that we use, we don't know the time and planning that goes into making our community so great,” Deiseroth said. “I think it's interesting to see behind the scenes of what goes on.”

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
