Earlier this year, New City native Brig. Gen.Cindy Jebb, made history when she was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the first woman to serve as academic dean at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Jebb, who attended Clarkstown South High School in West Nyack, is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

As a former member of the social sciences department at West Point, she has taught courses in comparative politics, international security, cultural anthropology, terrorism and counterterrorism, and officership.

Commissioned as a military intelligence officer, Jebb served in the 1st AD, III Corps, and the National Security Agency (NSA). Before reporting to the U.S. Military Academy, she served as the deputy commander of the 704th Military Intelligence Brigade, which supported NSA.

Jebb has also authored or co-authored three books, conducted human security research in Africa, and completed study projects in Iraq and Afghanistan.

During the summer of 2015, she served as a senior adviser for the chief of the Office of Security Cooperation-Iraq.

Jebb received a doctorate in political science from Duke University in 1997, a master of arts in political science from Duke in 1992, a master of arts in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College in 2000, and a bachelor's degree from the U.S. Military Academy in 1982.

She is married to her West Point classmate, Dr. Joel Jebb, and they have three children.
