When you include community, nonprofit organizations and university collaboration, students enrich their lives in and out of the classroom. My mission has been to bring community to my colleagues and JWU students university wide. Due to Covid-19, SunRise Forever, Inc. has focused on helping RI residents. As Board Chair of this nonprofit, I have been actively involved in launching a fresh fish project, called “SunRise Fuels with Fish”. A collaboration with the Rhode Island Food Policy Council, the Commercial Fisheries Center of Rhode Island and the African Alliance of Rhode Island to distribute fresh fish to over 300 families weekly.
