Meet the Chair

Dr. Greg Bullock

Greg Bullock grew up on a cattle farm in rural Jefferson Davis County, Mississippi, where he attended and graduated from the Bassfield school system. Since graduating from college, he has served as an educator for 38 years, 28 of which were in the public school system of Mississippi where he coached men’s basketball and taught history, English, and physical education.  Greg joined the faculty of William Carey in 2007 and, since his appointment as chair of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation in 2012, has steered the department from a traditional program to a program where two of the three degrees offered may be obtained online.

A member of the school board of Petal Schools, Greg resides in Petal Mississippi.  Though he has a wide variety of interests, his most enjoyable hobby is breeding and exhibiting boxers in AKC sanctioned conformation shows.  He is married to the former Suzanne Freeman, also an educator.  They have three children: Brett, Brittany, and Brooke.
