LUBBOCK, Texas -

A former member of the Texas Tech faculty testified in front of congress. Ambassador Tibor Nagy is the nominee for Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs.

Nagy has previously served as ambassador for Guinea and Ethiopia and has spent most of his career serving as a statesman in various parts of Africa. During his time at Tech he served as the Vice Provost for International Affairs. Most recently he was called back into service, briefly leading the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria.

"Since the last time I appeared before this committee nearly 20 years ago, Africa has changed dramatically, mostly for the better. Data points indicate improvement in overall levels in development, education, especially for girls, health governance, and economic well being. These improvements have been matched by dramatic declines in poverty, HIV infections, corruptions, and instability," Nagy said. "Credit goes to the generosity of the american people and U.S. policies for much of that progress."

Nagy must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate Committee on foreign relations.
