It is with excitement (and a little sadness) that we congratulate our reigning Mrs. Sierra Cities, Sheryl, on her new adventure!
We will miss her at our community service events, but we wish her the best in this endeavor.
Here, in her own words, is the explanation of what she is about to embark on:

"It is with much excitement I share some great news! I have been acting and modeling for 6 years, and have been with an agent in San Francisco for a year. After much thought, I made the decision to expand my endeavors in the Los Angeles market. Last week, after making a trip to Los Angeles, I was offered a contract by a highly respected agency! I have accepted the offer, and am making a temporary move to the LA area for several months. I was honored to have been chosen as Mrs. Sierra Cities this past April 2012, and know that all my pageant experience has contributed to my success in my modeling and acting career thus far. I will miss being Mrs. Sierra Cities, and the women (and girls) that I was getting to know. My wish for each of you is nothing but the best, and remember to always follow your dreams! With much gratitude and a humble heart, Sheryl Casper. Mrs. Sierra Cities 2012."
