President George W. Bush today announced his intention to nominate Roy L. Austin to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. ?Roy Austin has extensive knowledge of the histories and cultures of Caribbean nations.  His longstanding ties to this region will serve him well as the next U.S. Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago,? said President Bush. Austin has been a member of the faculty at Pennsylvania State University since 1972, and he is presently an Associate Professor of Sociology, Justice and African American Studies.  From 1994 to 1998, Austin was the Director of the Crime, Law and Justice program in the Department of Sociology.
