Ever since her father, Brian, passed away in 2007 from an undetected heart condition, Highland Park High School student Emma Schwartz has felt compelled to do something in his memory.

She’s watched as her dad’s friends dedicated a bench to him on McCraren Road, where the family used to live, and memorialized him with a baseball field and sign in his honor in Sunset Park.
