Ross_2 University of Central Florida instructor and executive in residence David Gray Ross has been named to President-elect Barack Obama's transition team.

The former circuit judge will serve on Obama's Health and Human Services team as an adviser to new secretary Tom Daschle. He and three other experts will review in particular child welfare, Head Start, and child support.

Ross, who served as deputy director in the Office of Child Support Enforcement under President Bill Clinton, will return to UCF after his temporary assignment ends.

"I consider him on loan and I want him back," UCF criminal justice and legal studies chair Robert Langworthy said in a news release.
