To encourage participation in leadership roles by as many of the members as is practical so that RISE truly represents all of the members.

We are saddened to announce the passing of Mike Dubin. Mike was born in New York City (Queens) and had a Master's Degree in Political Science and Government from Columbia University. He authored nine books on the Presidential Elections. He taught high school history for thirty years and retired to Sun City West. In 1996, he became a founding member of RISE, served on the Governing Council and taught until February 2016. His knowledge made history come alive for his student and his sense of humor made all his students laugh. We will miss him. A memorial service was held on June 15th in Sun City West. Donations can be made in Mike's memory to the Parkinson's Foundation or to RISE Learning for Life.
