September 24, 2003 - Posted at: 4:19 p.m. CDT

BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. -- The Rex and Alice A. Martin Foundation and Arkansas Northeastern College (ANC) announced the grand opening today of the NIBCO Children's Care Center on the college campus.

Dr. John Sullins, President of the College, said, "We are deeply grateful to The Rex and Alice A. Martin Foundation.  Without their lead contribution, a new improved day care center would not have become a reality.  Daycare for our students' children is an integral and necessary part of our mission to provide a quality education for our student body."

Alice A. Martin, President of the Rex and Alice A. Martin Foundation and Vice Chairman of NIBCO, Inc.; and Rex Martin, Chairman, President and C.E.O. of NIBCO, hosted the grand opening luncheon at the Blytheville Country Club.  In June of 2002, The Rex and Alice A. Martin Foundation contributed $75,000 to the college for the express purpose of building a new daycare center on campus.

The 4,000-square foot building provides free daycare for up to 54 of the children of students attending ANC.

The facility is named the "NIBCO Children's Care Center' in honor of NIBCO's Blytheville associates, past and present.  "NIBCO celebrates over 40 years in Blytheville.  The city of Blytheville and the state of Arkansas have been good partners for us," said Alice Martin.  The company manufactures flow control products for customers in the residential, commercial and industrial construction markets.
