Dr. Howard meet with Admiral Sandra Stosz, USCGA Superintendent, the first woman to lead a military service academy, and also with the Academy's Board of Trustees where he offered his insight on how they could improve their efforts to diversify the student body. His visit was facilitated by Tim Fitzpatrick '81, the Academy's Athletic Director.
During his time in New London, Dr. Howard also met with Mark Fader 87', Headmaster of the Williams School. The Williams School and Coast Guard Academy are a mere five minutes apart and both employ H-SC alumni in senior leadership roles.
