This year, Winokur has become further involved in the school community as a new advisor for WHS alliance club, a club which focuses on educating people on LGBTQ+ issues and providing a safe space for queer students. “Especially the safe space part [is important to me],” Winokur said. “We’re very lucky in the part of the country we live in and the community that we live in that, in general, it is a fairly safe place to live.
