PAUL SLUTES is the Aquatics Maintenance Supervisor. He started swimming as a baby with his dad at Northwest Pool, where at age 13 he became a Pool Attendant. At 17, he became the Pool Manager of Bartholomew and at age 18, Paul became Seasonal District Supervisor of East Central Austin. He has worked with Aquatics maintenance for over 10 years and has served on the Aquatics Citizen’s Advisory Board. He volunteers as a Cub Master with the Boy Scouts, avidly follows F1 car races, and spends time with his wife Monica and their two kids, Christopher and Tristan.
“With Bartholomew Swims, Forklift Danceworks has brought a lot of attention to our aging pools in Austin. It has initiated a lot of dialogue, and important conversations that are moving forward at a really rapid pace. The performances strengthened the bonds between maintenance and our Aquatics programs staff. It has brought Juan, Tap and I much closer together through the whole process.”
