PIHS Tribute Bricks Project
There is an exciting project underway at Presque Isle
High School. The Tribute Brick Project is being sponsored by the PIHS Student Council.
|During the summer of 2000, a beautiful engraved brick arrangement was constructed on the PIHS lawn on the corner of Griffin and Blake Streets. This area has
recently been embellished with gardens, flowering shrubs, benches and picnic tables and
has become a favorite place for students to gather at lunchtime, before and after school.

||The brick display is made up of individually engraved
bricks. These tribute bricks will honor former and present students, families, citizens,
special events, times and milestones that make (or have made) Presque Isle High School and
our community a special place.
These bricks will make great gifts for Christmas, birthdays, graduation or for just
about any occasion, and they are permanent!
The PIHS Student Council invites you to consider purchasing a tribute brick to honor that
"special someone." We believe the "Tribute Brick Project" will become a
distinguished focal point to be enjoyed by our school as well as by our community.

they were at PIHS or living in the community.
