Meet Lynda and David OlsonIn 2009, the Allen ISD Board of Trustees named Olson Elementary School in honor of two longtime Allen educators; David E. and Lynda F. Olson.
Dr. David Olson joined the Allen ISD staff in 1980 as principal of Boyd Elementary School. He was named as Allen ISD Director of Curriculum and Instruction in 1983 and served in that position until his retirement in 1995. He began his teaching career with Richardson ISD in 1965 as a chemistry teacher and later worked as a senior secondary education consultant with Richardson before moving to Allen.
Lynda Olson came to Allen from Richardson in 1983 as an elementary school counselor. In 1986 she moved to Allen High School where she served as a school counselor until her retirement in 1995. She began her teaching career in Richardson ISD in 1965 and later became an elementary school counselor in Richardson.
In addition to their education experiences, the Olsons have been actively involved as volunteers with community organizations including the
Allen Kiwanis Club, the Allen Retired Teacher’s Association and the
First Presbyterian Church of Allen.
