Aaron Winston Returns to RESPECT as Consulting Minority Artist

Aaron Winston, a former RESPECT actor-educator, has returned to be our Consulting Minority Artist.  In his role, Aaron provides the RESPECT staff, board, and audiences with a more diverse and inclusive perspective to better mirror the audiences whom we serve.  Aaron first joined RESPECT in 2017 as a new actor-educator.  His talent on stage is matched by his sincerity and connection with students.  Until he moved to Illinois at the start of 2020, he had been – and will continue to be during the 2019-2020 school year- a beloved member of RESPECT’s middle school after school programs that we run in partnership with Collective For Youth.  Aaron took a brief hiatus from RESPECT after moving away from the Omaha area at the start of 2020.  With much of our programming now being provided virtually, we were excited to be able to incorporate Aaron’s talent back into RESPECT’s work remotely.  We know that both RESPECT and the students we serve, will benefit greatly from his work.
