Jill Ruot-websize

Apache Junction Parks and Recreation coordinator Jill Ruot has been named the September “Competitor AOAP Aquatic Professional of the Month” by the Association of Aquatics Professionals, a nationally recognized agency.

The monthly recognition is a recurring feature of AOAP, naming a member of the national association “who has risen above the competition.”

“Jill has more than risen above the competition, she sets a standard for all of us at Parks and Recreation,” said Parks and Recreation Director Liz Langenbach. “She brings a high level of professionalism and energy to everything she does for our department and the citizens of our community.”

Ruot, who is an aquatics/fitness coordinator with Parks and Recreation, began her career teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding more than 20 years ago in North Dakota. She has spent the last 13 years with Apache Junction, beginning as a seasonal pool manager, then rebuilding the water aerobics program and was added to the full-time staff with the opening of the Multi-Generational Center. She has also played a critical role in the development of the city’s employee wellness program.

A member of the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona, Ruot volunteers at parks and aquatics conferences and has “Daily Workout” videos in the Aquatics Professionals digital newsletter.
