WASHINGTON—Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn., Monday congratulated Rear Admiral Sandra Stosz on being named the next Superintendent of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Stosz, who will assume her position next summer, will be the first woman to head one of the nation’s five military service academies.
“I want to offer my hearty congratulations to Rear Admiral Sandra Stosz for breaking the glass ceiling with her appointment to head the Coast Guard Academy,” said Lieberman. “RDML Stosz has a storied Coast Guard career. Having done everything from leading the Coast Guard recruit training center to commanding an ice breaker on the Great Lakes, I have no doubt she will be a talented and effective leader at the academy. I expect she will set very high standards at the Academy and serve as an admired role model for female and male cadets alike.”
