DENTON (UNT), Texas -- Lyndal M. Bullock, Regents Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology in the University of North Texas College of Education, was presented in April with the Outstanding Leadership Award from the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders for his contributions to the field.

"It is always an honor to be recognized for the work you love to do," Bullock said.

The Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders is an international community of educators focusing on special education for children and youth with or at risk of emotional and behavioral disorders.

The award is given to an individual who makes significant contributions through research; leadership in state, regional or national organizations; leadership in teacher education or practitioner preparation; or state and national policy development or implementation. This honor is among several in Bullock's career, including the Distinguished Service Award from the Teacher Education Division of the Council for Exceptional Children in 2012.

Bullock, who joined the UNT faculty in 1978, has coordinated leadership programs on emotional and behavioral disorders and received external funding for scholars who desire to work with children that have problem behavior or work in higher education.

He earned a doctoral degree from the University of Kansas, master's degrees from the University of Oklahoma and Southwestern Seminary and bachelor's degrees from Southwestern University and Oklahoma City University.
