DENTON (UNT), Texas--Lyndal Bullock, Regents Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology in the University of North Texas College of Education, earned the Distinguished Service Award from the Teacher Education Division of the Council for Exceptional Children for his service, commitment and contributions during his career.

Bullock received the award in November at the organization’s annual conference in Grand Rapids, Mich.

“Although there are numerous intrinsic rewards for serving the field of special education and the profession, recognition of your contributions by colleagues is always appreciated,” Bullock said.

Bullock has been of service to the UNT community for more than 30 years. He has coordinated leadership programs on emotional and behavioral disorders and received more than $20 million in external funding for scholars who desire to work with children who have problem behavior or work in higher education.

The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) is the largest international professional organization dedicated to improving the educational success of individuals with disabilities and/or gifts and talents. CEC advocates for appropriate governmental policies, sets professional standards, provides professional development, advocates for individuals with exceptionalities, and helps professionals obtain the conditions and resources necessary for effective professional practice.

A congratulatory video from Ellen Wildemann Broom, faculty member at Texas Christian University; Donna McCrary, faculty member at Texas A&M Commerce; and Mary Estes, senior lecturer of educational psychology at UNT, is available online.
