The Bidwell Training Center recognized Mary Ann Eisenreich, 62, of McCandless with its Fabric of Our Community award.

'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.

PAWW helps women with career counseling, computer training, training in communication and networking, and job placement services.

Age: 62

Residence: McCandless

Family: Husband, David; children Jennifer, Davis and Michael; and six grandchildren.

Education: B.S. in business education and psychology, University of Pittsburgh, 1985; Master of Education in adult and community education, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, 1997.
