SHERIDAN — Today marks a changing of the guards in the editorial department at The Sheridan Press.
Business and public safety reporter Paolo Cisneros leaves The Press today to return to Chicago after spending nearly one year covering two of the newspaper’s most active and interesting beats.
Cisneros joined the newspaper staff in August 2012. He is a Chicago native with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Illinois.
He plans to attend graduate school at University of Illinois-Chicago to study urban planning.
Cisneros experienced many firsts in Sheridan, including his coverage of the Sheridan-Wyo-Rodeo and ownership of his first car.
With Cisneros’ departure, The Sheridan Press welcomes Sheridan resident Tracee Davis to the editorial staff. Davis, originally from Kemmerer, moved to Sheridan in 2010.
Davis was trained in print and broadcast journalism in the U.S. Marine Corps, where she served as a public affairs noncommissioned officer.
These duties allowed Davis to travel the world on various assignments. Davis was stationed in Japan, South Africa, Germany and Iraq throughout her six years in the service.
After serving, Davis worked as a veterinary technician and as a reporter at Sheridan Media before joining The Press staff, where she too will cover local business, the regional energy sector and public safety.
“We are very excited to have Tracee join our staff,” Press Managing Editor Kristen Czaban said. “She brings with her a slew of local contacts, as well as a desire to inform Sheridan residents about community news in the most effective way possible.
“We know Tracee will be a great fit in our newsroom,” she added.
