Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark Makes History By Becoming First Black Superintendent In U.S. Air Force Academy

by Duke Magazine

It is no doubt that Black technocrats and leaders are assuming major positions across all endeavors of life. In the light of greater feats accomplished by Black people, Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark has been named the superintendent of the U.S. Air Force Academy, the promotion making him to become the first Black superintendent in the Academy’s history, WTVR reports.

The Richmond, VA native graduated from the Academy in 1986. He has worked as Commandment of Cadets and as a pilot specializing in bombing and air-refueling. Also, he has worked in various Air Force Command forces that has spanned for over three decades. 

In his new position, Clark will lead the Colorado Springs Academy’s athletic training program, cadet military, character development, and their undergraduate program succeeding Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria.

“It is a tremendous honor to be confirmed to serve as the next superintendent of the Air Force Academy,” Clark said, according to WTVR. “Knowing that I now have the privilege to build on Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria’s exceptional leadership in educating, training, and inspiring young men and women to become leaders in the Air and Space Forces is truly humbling.”
