Annapolis, Md. • President Barack Obama has appointed a new superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Friday that the president appointed Navy Rear Adm. Walter Carter, though the appointment still needs to be approved by the U.S. Senate. Carter will also be promoted to the rank of vice admiral.
