Joyce Hevel, former Executive Director of RISE, dedicated over 41 years of her life to building a foundation of opportunities so that persons with disabilities could become viable citizens in our community. Joyce was instrumental in the growth and transformation of RISE from starting the workshop in the basement of the Pleasant Lake School to our current location. Costa Miller, former CEO of the Indiana Association for Rehabilitation Facilities (INARF), was quoted saying, "through her perserverance and high degree of professionalism, Joyce was able to make a major, significant, and substantive breakthrough for rehabilitation facilities, not only in Indiana but throughout the country."
