Emma is currently a senior in high school and is looking forward to obtaining higher education in order to obtain a good career. She has participated in Aevidum, Future Farmers of America (FFA), and has served as the school’s Team and Cross-Country Manager, all while being on the distinguished honor roll.
She volunteered for 3 years with Heavenly Paws, an organization that assisted a local pet store in caring for cats. After the death of her stepfather, she had to stop volunteering to assist with taking care of her brother and working part-time at Chipotle where she works 20-35 hours per week.
Battalion Chief Bastinelli says of Emma, “In the face of the tragic loss of Dennis, she has developed into a strong pillar of support for her family and those around her. It is her drive and determination, along with her caring and loving nature that proves to me that she has what it takes to be successful and to thrive in her life before her.”
