    Vaughn Thompson has been a champion for education even from his roots in Brooklyn, NY. After graduating from Clark University, he returned to NYC and began a career in finance. After working for several Wall Street firms, he decided to pursue the dream of his life and join a field that was short on praise, but more personally fulfilling—education.

    After serving as school leader in NYC, Vaughn continued his career in educational leadership as a consultant and an instructional leader at several New Jersey charter schools and other growing educational entities focused on increasing student achievement throughout New York and New Jersey. Vaughn was the founding principal of Eagle Academy for Young Men of Newark, the first all-boys public school in the state of New Jersey.

    Vaughn continues to work steadfastly to mold the young minds of our geniuses, especially young men of color.
