Jayden is the son of Jason and Kristen Pittmann, and is a senior at Baltic High School. He was nominated to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point by Rounds.
“I congratulate Jayden on his offer of appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point,” said Rounds. “Jayden’s strong work ethic, desire to serve his country and leadership skills will help him as he begins this new chapter of life. Our service academies select the country’s top students to join their ranks, and we wish Jayden all the best at West Point.”
