Nancy A. Green has been named the executive director of the National Association for Gifted Children. Ms. Green, 41, who will begin her new job next month, currently serves as the executive director of the Fund to Promote Awareness of Occupational Therapy, as well as the associate executive director of corporate relations for the American Occupational Therapy Association.

The Washington-based NAGC publishes Parenting for High Potential, a quarterly magazine, and a research journal called Gifted Child Quarterly. The association also serves as a research, development, and advocacy organization for its 8,000 members nationwide.

Cynthia A. Rudrud, the principal of Raymond S. Kellis High School in Glendale, Ariz., has been elected president of the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

Ms. Rudrud, 55, whose one-year term began on March 2, succeeds Keith Taton, the principal of Central Middle School of Science in Anchorage, Alaska.

The association, based in Reston, Va., represents middle and high school leaders.

Marilyn W. Smith has been named a vice president and the director of programs for Reading Is Fundamental. Formerly the executive director of Communities in Schools Inc., Ms. Smith, 55, began her new position last month.

The previous director of programs, Margaret Monsour, left the organization earlier this year to become the vice president of strategic programs with the Arlington, Va.-based Gifts In Kind International.

The Washington-based RIF develops and provides 23,000 literacy programs to schools, parents, child-care centers, and Head Start facilities. The organization also provides 5.1 million children with free literacy resources, such as new books and motivational activities and guides.
