'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.

The Connellsville Area Career and Technical Center is providing the city of Connellsville and other local entities with a valuable resource — the center's students.

The center, which is part of the Connellsville Area School District, provides students a trade-based education. As part of the curriculum, students oftentimes have the opportunity to help with projects in the community.

This program benefits not only the students, who learn a trade, but also the city and other organizations, which over the years have been well served by the students' skills.

Most recently, students have been visiting the Connellsville Community Center and the Carnegie Free Library, where they are assisting with various projects. In past years, the students have completed projects for the parks in the city as well as helped the Yough River Trail Council — just to name a few organizations.

What a fine resource these students are to our community. And we commend them on their outstanding dedication and enthusiasm.

Cooperative programs such as this one help local organizations realize projects that they otherwise wouldn't be able to complete on their own. And that benefits everyone.
