WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - West Point is officially getting its first female dean.

The U.S. Military Academy says a ceremony will be held Friday to recognize Col. Cindy Jebb as the Dean of the Academic Board. She also will be promoted to brigadier general during a ceremony officiated by the academy’s superintendent, Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen.

Jebb is a 1982 West Point graduate who now heads the academy’s department of social sciences.

President Barack Obama nominated Jebb in April.

She replaces Brig. Gen. Tim Trainor, who is retiring.
