—Catherine A. Carroll

Peggy O’Brien will soon become the senior vice president of educational programming and services for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Ms. O’Brien, 57, served as the CPB’s vice president of education from 1994 to 2000. Since 2001, she has been the executive director of Cable in the Classroom, the cable television industry’s nonprofit education foundation, based in Washington. She will leave that job late this month to rejoin the CPB.

The Washington-based CPB develops educational television programs, public-radio broadcasts, and online services.

James P. MacGuire meanwhile, has already joined the Corporation for Public Broadcasting as the managing director of its upcoming American History and Civics programming initiative.

The initiative, which will be launched in December, will produce learning materials in American history and civics for middle and high school students.

Mr. MacGuire, 52, who started working at the CPB last month, previously served as a senior vice president at Gilder Publishing in Great Barrington, Mass.

Ann E. Benbow recently became the director of education, outreach, and development for the American Geological Institute.

Ms. Benbow, 50—who previously served as the director of development and outreach for the Alexandria, Va.-based organization—plans to oversee efforts to complement current middle and high school geological-science curricula with an elementary- level earth science program.

The institute represents more than 120,000 geologists, earth scientists, and geophysicists nationwide through 43 scientific and professional associations.
