Parker County Today June 2016 - Page 57

Tyler Burden - Stars and Strides Stables Over the years Tyler has lived all over Texas. He moved to Parker County when he was a junior in high school, moved to Lubbock for five years after graduating, then made his way back. He’s been here ever since.  Tyler is a realtor for Century 21 Judge Fite Company and has been in the business for the past three years. He plans to keep selling as much real estate as he can, to help develop Weatherford and make sure that it’s always growing and on the right course for the future.  He enjoys getting to know and talking to new people and looks forward to raising as much money as he can for his charity, Stars and Strides Stables.  When asked to be a PCT Bachelor, Tyler looked into it, and once he realized it was for a good cause he knew it was something he wanted to be a part of. “I feel very flattered that I was even nominated,” he told PCT.  With an easygoing, laid-back personality, Tyler is looking for a woman who is down to earth and has a steady head on her shoulders. He wants someone with a sense of humor who doesn’t take things too seriously.  Tyler plays sand and indoor volleyball, and when he has time to spare he can usually be found on the golf course. Sierra Lambert - Careity Foundation Born and raised in Parker County, Sierra attended Brock High School and Tarleton State University. He currently works for Raymond James Financial Services. He looks forward to meeting lots of new people and to raising money for his charity. Considering he volunteered for the Careity Foundation prior to his nomination, he is excited to now raise money for them and help out even more. When asked about his feelings on being nominated Sierra said “it’s an honor.” He would like to have multiple offices in the future; one in Fort Worth is his next goal. However, if he could open an office anywhere in the world, his ideal choice would be Breckenridge, Colorado. As an outdoorsy man himself, Sierra would like to find a woman who enjoys getting out and being active. Aside from the norm — pretty, nice, good personality, etc. — he really hopes to find someone goal-driven, a w oman who knows what she wants to do in life and isn’t afraid to work hard to get there. Sierra hopes to bring more awareness to his charity. Working in the financial world doesn’t provide him with a lot of spare time; however, if he did have free time Sierra would be all about extreme sports. Off the top of his head, he said he would want to travel, surf, snowboard, mountain bike, race, or maybe deep sea fish. Wil Wakeland - Weatherford/Parker County Animal Shelter JUNE 2016 PA R K E R C O U N T Y T O D AY Originally from Waxahachie, Wil moved to Parker County just as soon as he could. A graduate of the University of North Texas, he works for the City of Willow Park as a utility billing clerk in the water department. Being relatively new to the area, Wil is looking to meet new people and to get involved in the community. Being a Parker County Today Bachelor gives him the opportunity to do both. “It feels really good to be recognized,” he told PCT when asked how he felt about the nomination. He feels very flattered and hopes to bring awareness and new ideas to his charity, Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter. In the future Wil would like to further his education and earn his master’s degree, and to one day work in an executive management position in municipal government. He is very laid-back concerning the qualities he wants in a woman. “Just a sense of humor and someone outgoing.” Wil enjoys outdoor activities such as golfing, walking trails and skateboarding. In his down time, he plays in a rock band, which he’s been part of for the past two years, with a few close friends. Being new anywhere can be a tough change, but Wil is excited about meeting others in the community and cannot wait to help raise money for his charity. 55
