'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.

Age: 17

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.”
