“Students like Jadyn Puthoff are the reason we have (the) success we do at Fort Loramie High School. Jadyn is a great representation of our school and is an outstanding role model for our younger students to emulate and follow. Jadyn is an extremely hard worker who not only excels in the classroom, but excels on the court as well, as she was a key member to our state-runner up volleyball team, and our no. 1 ranked girls basketball team. Jadyn is also honest. Last year, during the time when schools were closed for COVID-19, when I reached out to students to get feedback on what the school was doing well during the close, and what we could approve upon, Jadyn was one of the first I contacted. I knew I could count on her to give me a straight answer of how we as a building were doing,” Fort Loramie High School Principal Kreg Hollenbacher said. “Along with her honesty and work ethic, another great trait of Jadyn’s is her heart and her willingness to help others. The time she spends volunteering at Dorothy Love and participating in the pen pal program is beyond admirable. The dedication she shows in providing time for a group in our society that can feel like they’ve been forgotten is impressive.”
