September 2015 Employee of the Month

Arthur Demarath

Parks & Leisure Services

Arthur was employed by the City of Porterville as a Leisure Services Coordinator in March 2014.  Some of his duties include overseeing the Youth Center, administering fall soccer, arena soccer and youth baseball, handling program registrations and facility reservations, and assisting with many of the Parks and Leisure Services special events throughout the year.

Two of Arthur’s highest attributes are his integrity and exceptional work ethic.  He is a driven individual who sets goals and goes after them.  His latest accomplishment was increasing the youth fall soccer program to an all-time high, with 476 boys and girls ages 4-13 participating, along with 110 volunteer coaches.

When he’s not recruiting Council Members to umpire a youth baseball game, or lining a soccer field, Arthur may be seen working with the Team M youth wrestling program or coaching the varsity wrestling team at Monache High School where he has been the head coach since 2008 and in the program since 1998.

Arthur is married to his wife, Eileen, and has two children: Arthur III age 19, and Zachary age 16.  His family volunteers at many special events and are always a huge help.  Aside from coaching, Arthur enjoys reading James Patterson novels, watching all forms of sports, and tending to his 40-year-old bonsai tree “Bud.”  Arthur states working with his co-workers, and with the community, helping kids get involved with sports, are two of his favorite aspects of his job.
