New AFA Superintendent

By  | 

The Air Force has named Lieutenant General John Regni today to be superintendent of the Air Force Academy.

Regni is commander of the Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. He'll replace Lieutenant General John Rosa Junior, who's stepping down to become president of The Citadel, a private military college in Charleston, South Carolina.

Regni takes over the prestigious academy near Colorado Springs as it works to recover from scandals over sexual assaults and religious intolerance.

Dozens of female cadets have said they were punished or forced to resign after reporting they were sexually assaulted.

The allegations led to a complete change in the school's command structure that put Rosa in charge.
