Rear Adm. Kelly Named as New Coast Guard Academy Superintendent

Jan 11, 2019
NEW LONDON, Conn. — A new superintendent will take the helm this summer at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

The New London, Connecticut-based academy announced that Rear Adm. William Kelly will take over as superintendent from current Superintendent Rear Adm. James Rendon.

Kelly, a 1987 academy graduate, is currently the Coast Guard's assistant commandant for Human Resources, a position he has held since April 2016.

His appointment comes amid a congressional investigation into the handling of allegations of discrimination and harassment against minority cadets at the academy.

The Department of Homeland Security's inspector general also released a report recently that found a black member of the faculty had been retaliated against after she complained of harassment and bullying based on her gender and race.

The academy has about 1,000 students.
