(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The first woman in line to lead the Air Force Academy is awaiting Senate approval.

Major General Michelle Johnson has been appointed to be the next Superintendent of the Academy.

But the Senate must first approve Johnson's promotion to a three-star Lieutenant General--the rank required to become Superintendent.

If it is approved, she would be the first woman to hold the job.

Johnson is a 1981 graduate of the Academy.

She is currently NATO's Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations and Intelligence.

It's not immediately clear when she would assume command.
