The Story of the Ram’s Head
as told by Mike Hayes
Prior to the opening of PHHS in August of the early 1960s, coach Snowden, an art teacher and tennis coach, designed the Ram’s Head to be constructed with tiles in the main foyer of the high school. Members of the tennis team brought their rackets, sleeping bags, and some food to room 601. Tennis practice was in the morning, laying tiles that created the ram mosaic was during the afternoon and early evening. Sleeping in 601 after three days and nights, the new Ram’s Head was ready for grouting. Lee Hayes, father of two members of the team, grouted the Ram mosaic thus completing the symbolic Ram’s Head to be Revered by all those who walk the halls of Pleasant Hill high school.
