CTE Instructor: Anthony Dinecola

Anthony Dinecola, a new CTE instructor with the Livingston Parish School System. He is pictured here with Livingston Parish CTE Coordinator Staci Polozola.

Anthony Dinecola went through the welding program in 2004-2005 at Pathways in Walker. His instructor, at that time, referred to him as the best welder he had ever seen. Anthony told the instructor that he would return to the school one day to assist students just like the instructor had done for him. His instructor gave him some valuable advice, “Go and perfect your craft. Go make a good living providing for your family and then return.” He did exactly that some 16 years later. His instructor, Mr. Jeremy Kinchen, retired at the end of the school year in 2022. Mr. Dinecola was hired as his replacement. He brings an impressive resume as a Welding Inspector with work experience at Epic Piping, Fabricated Pipe, and Shaw Sunland. Ms. Polozola says they are thrilled to have Mr. Dinecola as a Livingston Parish School Welding Instructor.
