Rotarians Pete Connair, Denny Hicks and Steve Percy confer a Paul Harris Fellow Award on USCGA Rear Admiral, Sandra Stosz on behalf of the Rotary Club of New London



On Thursday, May 14, Rear Admiral Sandra L. Stosz, USCGA Superintendent and a member of New London Rotary Club, was presented with the Paul Harris Service Award at the NLRC weekly meeting. The Paul Harris Service Award is the highest honor a club can bestow on a person, either inside or outside the club.  The award acknowledges dedication to “service above self,” the motto of Rotary International, which now has over a million members worldwide. Individual clubs select recipients of the Paul Harris Service Award to honor those who have offered service to their community, their nation, or indeed to the world.  This annual award recognizes Rotarians and other worthy community leaders worldwide who have demonstrated exemplary humanitarian service, with an emphasis on personal volunteer efforts and active involvement in helping others through Rotary.  Paul Harris was the founder of Rotary International, a service organization, in 1905.


Rear Admiral Stosz graduated from the Coast Guard Academy in 1982 with a bachelor of science degree in Government. She was awarded a Master of Business Administration degree from Northwestern University’s J. L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management in 1994. In 2000 she completed an executive fellowship in national security through the MIT Seminar XXI program, and she earned a Master of National Security Strategy from the National War College in 2004. In 2009 she attended the Navy’s Executive Business Course at University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler business school.


Rear Admiral Stosz’s personal awards include three Legion of Merit Medals, four Meritorious Service Medals, two Coast Guard Commendation Medals and two Coast Guard Achievement Medals.  She participates in the change of command ceremony at the USCGA on June 1, 2015.


Rear Admiral Stosz assumed the duties of the 40th Superintendent of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, June 3, 2011. She reported to the Academy after serving as the Director of Reserve and Leadership at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Rear Admiral Stosz is a surface operations officer with 12 years at sea, including command of two cutters – an icebreaking tug on the Great Lakes and a medium endurance cutter that patrolled North Atlantic and Caribbean waters. Between sea duty tours Rear Admiral Stosz specialized in personnel and resource management and program review.
