During t he college Spring Break, March 4-12, Tonia Talbott, counselor at SVCC, and Martha Reed, biology faculty, led a 14 member team to Honduras on a Mountain Medical Mission Trip.  During their week in Honduras, the team set up medical clinics in five communities in the rural mountainous regions of Honduras. 
Each local woman who came to the clinic with her family was given a handmade dishcloth, stitched by Southside Virginia volunteers, to show appreciation and a common bond from our community of women to theirs.
