Tony Parcher
Instructor
Years with ENSA:
After seeing an ad in the paper, Tony became interested in the wind academy at KVCC.
He was a journeyman tool and dye maker for 15 years. He was a service and resource tech for Vestas for 4 ½ – 5 years; now he’s a level 3 technician and has been an instructional manager for KVCC for 2 years. For fun, he enjoys going on tours and benefit rides on his Harley. He especially enjoys military and cancer patient rides. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, and anything outdoors. That’s especially why he enjoys the wind industry so much – because it’s all outdoors.
