While Elizabethtown is a small community, Elizabethtown Area High School is home to international students from numerous countries. These students are exchange students or immigrants, representing Mexico, Egypt, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Honduras, Burma, Thailand, Spain, Germany, and Sweden, along with several others. Many of them are furthering their English education and taking advantage of opportunities here at Elizabethtown.
Government classes at Elizabethtown Area High School ran a mock election the week of Oct. 29 through Nov. 2. Students elected Lou Barletta, Jess King, Tom Wolf, and John Fetterman. Monday through Thursday, students debated as the candidates, and Friday, the government classes ran a get-out-the-vote effort and elections.
