Keri Sheffield

Miss Rodeo America 2018

Keri Sheffield is a 24-year-old sweet-tea drinking, sunshine-loving, cowgirl from Summerfield, Florida. She has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Berry College, and works as an ICU nurse. As Miss Rodeo America, Keri will receive more than $20,000 in scholarships. When the year is over, she plans to continue her education to become a nurse anesthetist and carry out her vision to serve as a medical missionary.

During her reign as Miss Rodeo America and as the official representative of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, Keri will travel more than 120,000 miles and appear at more than 120 rodeo performances. Along the rodeo trail she’ll make appearances at schools, children’s hospitals, civic groups and other special events to educate the public about the sport of rodeo. Keri will also serve as a spokesperson at a variety of promotional events and model in advertisements for Western clothiers, publications, Miss Rodeo America sponsors and other service providers to the Western industry.

Keri’s determination is resolute, her passions unmistakable: riding, rodeo, kissing on her nieces and nephews, and living a life of service. In her spare time, Keri enjoys reading, hunting, fishing, riding horses, boating with her family, befriending strangers, going on mission trips, paying it forward, and sports.

“There is an abundance of privilege and responsibility bound to the crown of Miss Rodeo America. It would afford any one of us the unique and honorable opportunity to promote the sport of rodeo and the Western way of life. It is also a deeply personal choice. I have prayed for an avenue by which I can be a living demonstration that a life is best lived when it is given selflessly to others. I have prayed for a path that can make my dreams of continuing my education a reality, which will ultimately lead me to help administer medical services as a missionary in third world countries. I have prayed for a way to lead others towards a sense of belonging and community. I have prayed for a position of leadership from which I can teach humility and simple kindness. Miss Rodeo America is, quite frankly, an answer to my prayers.”
