Vaughan was a writer, story editor and producer of the television series Lost during seasons three through five. He was nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award for Best Dramatic Series at the February 2009 ceremony for his work on the fourth season. The writing staff was nominated for the award again at the February 2010 ceremony for their work on the fifth season. He was formerly the showrunner and executive producer of the TV series Under the Dome. Wired describes Vaughan's comics work as "quirky, acclaimed stories that don't pander and still pound pulses". His creator-owned comics work is also characterized by "finite, meticulous, years-long story arcs", on which Vaughan comments, "That's storytelling, with a beginning, a middle, and an end. Something like Spider-Man, a book that never has a third act, that seems crazy." In 2007, Erik Malinowski, also of Wired, called Vaughan "the greatest comic book visionary of the last five years", comparing him to Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Paul Pope, and Steve Niles, and praised his addition to the TV series Lost as redeeming that series' third season. For his writing, Vaughan has won 14 Eisner Awards, 14 Harvey Awards, and a Hugo Award.

  • Jonathan Carbone, 2000 - Jonathan Carbone graduated from Spectrum School in the year 2000. Jonathan had a rough start in life weighing only 4 lbs at full term birth. As he grew it was obvious that he had some difficulties with muscular coordination. He struggled with throwing a ball, riding a tricycle, and , in his early elementary years at Spectrum, had great difficulty drawing, and making letters and numbers. His teachers used multiple materials and strategies to help him work on his eye-hand coordination. Beginning reading was difficult as his letters were not stabilized. He was never made to feel inadequate or like a failure. Because the classrooms were multi-age, it was not an issue that he remained in the same class for more than a year. Indeed Jonathan was quite pleased to spend additional time with the person who became one of his favorite teachers. When he was ready and confident in his abilities, he moved on and on – to graduate from college, to attain a Masters Degree from New York University and a Doctorate from Florida International University. He now teaches courses in Legal Psychology at the University level.
