NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - In a break from past practice, the U.S. Coast Guard says Rear Adm. Sandra L. Stosz, superintendent of the Coast Guard Academy, has been selected to continue as a rear admiral in the Coast Guard.

She became the first woman ever to lead a U.S. military academy when she began her tour at the academy in New London in 2011. The Day of New London reports (https://bit.ly/1wiaN7H ) that spokesman David Santos says her tour was due to end in the summer of 2015.

Stosz’s continuation is a change because superintendents of the academy typically retire after completing their time in the post.

Santos says the superintendent’s post caps a Coast Guard officer’s career.
