Honored and excited, Summer returned to her beautiful state of South Carolina as Miss United States 2015.

The Miss United States system prides itself in providing an avenue for each young woman to give a voice to those needing to be heard, to lend a hand to those less fortunate, and to be a compass for those daring to dream. “My personal commitment,” said Priester, “is to spend each of the 365 days of my reign making a difference and inspiring others to do the same. There is no limit to the impact young women can make on society.”

As Miss United States, Summer will be the face of the organization for one year, working with the organizations national philanthropy No Kid Hungry  and multiple other charitable endeavors, as well as being the cover girl for sponsors such as Vizcaya Swimwear and Marc DeFang.
