City of Goshen's Kid Mayor program kicks off Monday

GOSHEN, Ind. - The City of Goshen's Kid Mayor program kicks off this week for all fourth-grade students in the city.

Starting Monday, the program will be presented to fourth-graders across the city with a lesson on, "What does a mayor do?"

The program is an interactive, mock election that lets fourth-graders run for and vote for the position of Kid Mayor.

Kid Mayor is open to fourth-graders in Goshen's three school systems, Goshen Community Schools, Bethany Christian Schools, and St. John the Evangelist Catholic School, as well as homeschooled learners.

Students who want to run for Kid Mayor must have a Goshen address but kids in neighboring school corporations can participate in the voting process.

The student voted Kid Mayor will participate in a number of activities with Goshen Mayor Jeremy Stutsman.

This is the second year the program is open to students in the greater Goshen community.
