“Unfortunately, we are caught up in the negative headlines associated with Rhode Island’s community service grant program and it seems to have had a detrimental impact on our ability to be a grant recipient this year,” said Eleanor Smalley, CEO of JASON Learning. “We are proud of this program and because of our relationship with the University of Rhode Island’s School of Oceanography, we do not want to see Rhode Island become the only state that we do not operate in.”
