Dodd Elementary est. 1999
Dodd Elementary was built in 1999. This beautiful facility was named for R.C. Dodd, a lifetime educator who spent most of his professional career in Wylie. He was employed by Wylie ISD in 1953 as a coach and in 1956 was named principal of Wylie Junior High School, a position he held until his death in 1976.
Mr. Dodd was known throughout the community as a man who genuinely cared about young people and had a remarkable influence on hundreds of lives.
Additionally, Mr. Dodd served two terms on the Wylie City Council, was elected mayor of Wylie, and served as president of the Wylie Chamber of Commerce and Wylie Lions Club.
He and his wife Geline, who retired in 1997 after a 47-year teaching career, were active members of the Church of Christ.
