On May 21, 2019, William G. Pagán of Coats & Bennett spoke with the Senior class of Research Triangle High School along with two other distinguished panelists about their professional and academic career path.  Research Triangle High School is a public charter high school in nearby Research Triangle Park, NC that has a focus on the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines.

“It’s important for kids to know that the path to professional and academic achievement is not always straight,” said Mr. Pagán.  “There can be many twists and turns along the way.  Every one of the panelists has a unique story, but a common theme today was that education and diligence are critical.”

Mr. Pagán is a multi-award-winning patent attorney, member of the NC State Computer Science Alumni Hall of Fame, and a named inventor on over 130 patent applications.  Coats & Bennett is proud to support STEM-based youth and mentoring programs.
