J. Scott Gration Appointed Ambassador to Kenya

Scott Gration
J. Scott Gration, the Obama administration's Sudan envoy, will become U.S. ambassador to Kenya.

Gration, a retired Air Force major general, was one of the first prominent military officials to embrace Obama as a presidential candidate, and he traveled with the then senator to Africa in 2006. Gration grew up in Africa, the son of missionaries, and speaks Swahili.

He has a bachelor's degree from Rutgers University and earned a master's degree in national security studies from Georgetown University in Washington in 1988. (Wash Post, 2/11/2011, Wiki)
