About Us

The Vaughn & Friends Alumni Association, Inc. membership now includes graduates from all high school special education programs and their friends, as well as the original members who were graduates of Jacqueline B. Vaughn Occupational High School in Chicago, Illinois.

Vaughn& Friends Alumni Association, Inc. The symbol in the center of our logo is a Native American representation of the word everlasting or forever, and the crossed arrows represent friendship. It is encapsulated in a circle that has no beginning and no end to further enhance the idea of "forever." We are indeed a circle of friends, ever expanding to accommodate our growing membership and their unique needs. We chose Native American symbols because Native Americans had a philosophy of inclusive community that coincides with our own.

Founder - Mrs. Nancy Mayer
