The mayor of Goshen is stepping down.
Kyle Roddey is set to resign in the next few months. He recently accepted a position as assistant principal at Goshen High School.
In 2011, Roddey was elected as the village's youngest mayor at age 25. His current four-year term was set to end in 2019.
In a statement, Roddey says, "While I enjoy being the mayor now as much I did in 2011 when I was first elected,  I will have to resign in the next few months.  I have never given this community less than my best and to hold both offices would make me unable to do so.  I am thankful that I will be able to continue my service to Goshen in this new capacity as I return 'home' to the school that had such a tremendous impact on me."
His statement continues, "Being mayor has been the highlight of my life and I will greatly miss being on the Village Board and working with our team. Ultimately however I want to devote myself 100 percent to the students and families of the Goshen School District.  In the near future I will know the date my resignation will take effect and I will want to reflect more deeply on this amazing journey,  but for now I am thrilled to be joining the Gladiator team."
