Handmade Dishcloths to Go to Honduras 
The SoVa (Southside Virginia) Mountain Medical Team will travel to five  remote villages in the mountains of Honduras during SVCC's Spring Break.   Hundreds of villagers will be provided primary and preventative healthcare.  Each woman who brings her family to  the clinic will be given a handmade dishcloth, stitched by Southside Virginia volunteers,  to show appreciation and common bond from our community of women to theirs.  Martha Reed, instructor, ( L to R), her daughter Mary Preston Reed, and Tonia Talbott, counselor, and her daughter, Ally Little (not pictured) will be among those traveling with this mission team.

Josh Baird has a Cool Job
Josh Baird is a great example of a person with a good work ethic. He graduated from Brunswick High School on a Saturday and began working as a contractor at the Dominion Virginia Power's Brunswick County power station on Monday.
Thanks to training Baird received in high school through Dual Enrollment Classes at Southside Virginia Community College, he was able to obtain this great job at the new facility located in Brunswick County.
"I received certificates in Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) and High Performance Technology (HPT) from SVCC (while still in high school)", Baird said. "This is the reason I was able to secure such a great job," he added.
