A Catholic college in California has named its Vanessa Bedient and Molly Reidelberger Scholarship for Excellence in Poetry after a Planned Parenthood director and a longtime Planned Parenthood volunteer. Mrs. Bedient served as the director of Planned Parenthood in Santa Barbara, where her two children were raised, and later in San Francisco, according to the web site of St. Marys College of California. She loved literature and the arts, and was the soul of goodness. Ms. Reidelberger, in turn, volunteered at Planned Parenthood for 15 years.
According to the colleges web site, Dr. Shawny Anderson, the colleges Associate Dean for Liberal Arts, received an award in 1992 for continuing social and political service for the completion of the Choice project to benefit Planned Parenthood. She was responsible for Choice, a 2-song cassingle (one song on each side of a short cassette tape), produced as a fund-raiser for the Tecumseh Area Planned Parenthood Association.
In addition, Planned Parenthood is included on two of the colleges job web sites.
Founded by the Brothers of the Christian Schools in 1863, St. Marys College of California has 3,840 students, 2,621 of them undergraduates.
