GOSHEN — Hal Farmwald, Goshen High School teacher and head baseball coach, has resigned both positions.

Athletic director Larry Kissinger told The Elkhart Truth on Monday, Sept. 16, that Goshen employees were emailed with the information Friday, Sept. 13.

Farmwald was a business teacher. He had been head baseball coach at Goshen since 2008.

According to a statement from Goshen Superintendent Diane Woodworth, Farmwald resigned Friday for “personal reasons.”

“Since that time, social media and the local rumor mill have erupted with a multitude of inaccuracies,” Woodworth wrote in the statement. “It is the policy of Goshen Community Schools not to comment publicly on personnel matters. All applicable procedures and reporting requirements have been followed by the school corporation.

“District officials emphasize that the focus of Goshen Community Schools remains on ensuring that students receive an outstanding education and achieve excellence in a safe environment in academics, athletics and the arts.”

Farmwald, contacted Tuesday, Sept. 17, by a Truth reporter, declined to comment.
