Sydney Barber

Midshipman 1st Class Sydney Barber of Lake Forest, Ill., has been chosen as the highest-ranked member of the student body at the United States Naval Academy. She is a beautiful, sharp, articulate young woman who happens to be Black. I don't think she is the first female, but she is the first Black female to become Brigade Commander.

She is 21 years old.
