'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: Grayson has been selected to receive a 2013 Newman Civic Fellow Award. Given by Boston-based Campus Compact, a national coalition of college and university presidents, this year's awards recognize 181 college student leaders who worked to find solutions to problems in their communities.

Age: 27

Residence: Duquesne

Background: An Atlanta native, Grayson developed an interest in feeding the needy through his experience in the restaurant industry. A full-time student at Community College of Allegheny County, he prepares and serves meals for the homeless and supervises the campus Scouting for Food drive. Grayson created Fertile Ground, a project that supports urban food gardens.

Education: Associate degree in culinary arts from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta in 2006. Grayson will earn an Associate of Science degree in theater from CCAC in May. He hopes to attend the University of Pennsylvania in the fall.

Quote: “(My suggestion for future CCAC students) is just to get involved and keep pressing forward … and to take every opportunity that is presented to them because you never know what doors will open for you.”
