East Greenwich resident Deepak Vishnu is one of four National Grid employees who earned that company’s Ethics Liaison award. Spreading the win, Vishnu took the $500 award and split it evenly between two EG organizations.

He chose Meadowbrook Farms’ technology fund because his son attends the school, and an older son went there.

“I was talking to the principal there and he was the one who pointed me to the technology fun,” said Vishnu. “I was really happy to pick that organization. Next to parents, your teachers play a major role in shaping your character.”

Vishnu picked Cub Scout Pack 3 because of his older son's involvement.

"Every year, my older son and I do Scouting for Food," he said. "I felt that was another organization that was very deserving."

Vishnu got the award as one of National Grid's 44 ethics liaisons.

"We have our day jobs," he said – Vishnu is in gas construction – "we also wear a second hat and that’s to promote ethics and ethical behavior. I serve as a resource for the rest of the gas organization." 

If someone isn't sure about accepting a gift or if a relationship creates a conflict of interest, they would to Vishnu. 

"I point people in the right direction," he said.
