A Tale of Two Cities - William Flores Jr.
Jul 10, 2019
William “Bill” Flores, Jr. was born in Lafayette during the heyday of the oil and gas boom. His father, a geologist, was transferred from Shreveport to Lafayette in 1954. Born and raised in Lafayette, Flores has fond memories of attending the LAGCOE expo with his father when he was a boy of 10 or so. He had always wanted to become an engineer, and after he graduated from LSU in petroleum engineering, he returned to Lafayette to work in the 1980s.
