A 1989 U.S. Naval Academy graduate has been nominated to serve as the school’s first female leader. Rear Adm. Yvette Davids’ nomination to become the academy’s 64th superintendent was announced Friday by Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael M. Gilday. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Davids would replace Vice Adm. Sean Buck at the completion of his four-year term this summer. Davids also has been nominated for the rank of vice admiral.
