Will Pagán was already an award-winning software developer, patent engineer and inventor when he joined Coats & Bennett as a Patent Agent. Now he adds to his resume, “Valedictorian of the 2014 graduating class from NC Central University School of Law’s evening program.” However, when he was growing up in New York, Will didn’t always see great opportunities in his future. NC Central University recently interviewed Will, and he recounts how the mentors in his life recognized his potential and helped place him on the path towards success . . . resulting in a Master’s degree in Computer Science, “Master Inventor” status at IBM, and a juris doctorate degree.
