A new superintendent will take the helm at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. The Academy announced on Thursday that Rear Admiral William Kelly will start this summer.

Kelly graduated from the Academy in 1987. He’s been the Coast Guard's assistant commandant for human resources since April 2016.

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