Lyndal Bullock receives Mackie Award

Lyndal M. Bullock, professor in educational psychology, was awarded the 2015 Mackie Award at the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Convention in San Diego, CA.

The Mackie Award is presented annually to an outstanding professional who has demonstrated leadership in CEC and other organizations for an extensive period of time and contributed to the field of education through ways such as policy assessment, publications, research and leadership preparation. The award was established as a tribute to Romaine P. Mackie (1898 - 2001) who is credited as a forerunner of the movement to establish standards to help prepare personnel who will work with students with disabilities.

"I was acquainted with Dr. Mackie and some of my early research was stimulated by selected initiatives she made while serving in the role as a director of what was then the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare," said Bullock.

Bullock has research interests in behavioral assessment, parent-professional communication, and designing appropriate educational environments and services for children with emotional or behavioral disorders. In addition to his teaching and research, he coordinates the master's and doctoral leadership programs which concentrate on emotional/behavioral disorders in special education at UNT.
