A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PIEDMONT YEARBOOK:
Here are the choices for the new Piedmont High School yearbook name. Which will you vote for?
THE TARTAN: Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors, worn chiefly by the Scottish Highlanders, with each clan having its own distinct plaid. The Tartan represents both the individuals within the PHS community, as well as the woven threads that bring us together.
THE FIFER: A Fife is a small high-pitched pipe, and one who blows the pipe is a fifer. Traditional fifing tunes which originated in Scotland actually used hornpipes played in a modified time to fit the distinctive rhythm. The Fifer represents the strong and creative “voices” of the PHS community.
THE PRIDE: A Lion’s pride describes a group or company of lions, and the Pride couples with PHS’ newer athletics mascot. A more common definition of pride is having a sense of one’s own worth, a feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements or the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated. The Pride represents PHS unity and honor.
THE ROAR: a loud and expressive sound. A roar may be uttered by a lion or another large wild animal or produced by a crowd. The Roar represents the strong and collective “voices” of the PHS community.
