Alumnus Jeff Jones (class of '67) gifted the 400-pound statue in honor of the PHS 50th class reunion.
"I have been a wood carver my whole life and carving a statue like this for the school is something that has always been on my bucket list," Jones said in the Facebook post.
Jones? wife and PHS alumna ('69), Jackie, documented the project from start to finish and donated all of the photos to the school.
The statue will be put on permanent display in the Library Media Center.
