'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.

New Fox Chapel Area Superintendent Gene Freeman said Monday night that his top priority will be to build a rapport with every student in each of the district's six schools.

Freeman, who officially joined the district a week ago, told school board members that he has visited four of the schools.

“The children have been incredibly friendly,” Freeeman, 53, said at his first board meeting at Fairview Elementary School. “I feel like I'm the one who is blessed.”

Freeman, who comes to the district from Manheim Township School District in Lancaster, was hired in December to take the place of the retired Anne Stephens.

The native of North Carolina earned his master's degree from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and his education specialist degree from South Carolina State University. His doctorate is from Fayetteville State University. He began his career as a private school kindergarten teacher before serving as a sixth-grade teacher in public school.
