Our school is named after a beloved Austin Mathews Elementary school teacher, Leona Doss. “Doss started teaching in Austin in 1926 and continued until her death from cancer in 1967. Doss Elementary was built and named for her in 1970. In addition to self-portraits, she loved painting owls. The owl became Doss Elementary School’s mascot.”*
