Rebecca Murray, manager of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Glenwood Springs, has received the Helen K. Klanderud award, a recognition award instituted by the nonprofit networking group called the POD.

POD has met monthly for 23 years in Aspen, consisting of about 35 regular members of Healthy Community Fund grant recipients.

This award was begun by the group after the passing of Helen Klanderud to recognize her dedication to health and human services in Pitkin County and Aspen.

Klanderud was a faithful member of POD, serving as a citizen representative of the group for many years.

The award is presented to a person who has shown exemplary service, achievement and leadership on behalf of health and human services.
