Since 1951, NATCO has continually invested in improving and advancing technology in the communities we serve. Our commitment to the area runs much deeper than buried fiber cable.
Each year, NATCO chooses to invest in our local communities by supporting the educational efforts of students through scholarships, programs and grants. We also support community projects that promote economic growth, encourage environmental awareness and improve the quality of life for our friends and neighbors right here in north-central Arkansas.
NATCO is committed to the local communities we serve. In conjunction with our charitable foundation, we’ve provided over $800,000 in local support, including:
- Annual scholarships to students in every high school in NATCO’s service area
- Arkansas State University Mountain Home Annual Scholarship Endowment
- North Arkansas College Annual Scholarship Endowment
- Marion County Youth Leadership Annual Tech Day
- Audubon Society Classroom Kits to promote environmental awareness in area elementary schools

- Annual Telephone Directory Recycling Project
- Grant workshops for community organizations and clubs
- Annual fundraisers to support cancer research and survivors of domestic violence
NATCO recently enjoyed hosting nineteen ninth grade students from Marion County schools to learn about the telecommunications industry at NATCO’s office in Flippin. The event, held December 7th, was "Tech Day" for the students on this year's South Shore - Marion County Youth Leadership Team. The students and advisors attending were from Yellville-Summit, Flippin and Bruno-Pyatt schools.
The team was welcomed with breakfast and an introduction to the company, then divided into groups to learn about business functions by departments. Each department had interactive activities for students to participate in which ranged from Engineering, where students learned about and experimented drawing with CAD tools, to the IT Department, where students learned a bit about technology innovations and trouble-shooting. Other displays included NATCO representatives working with students on activities in Accounting, Customer Service and Network Services. Students also took a tour of the Flippin office and Central Office where NATCO team members answered questions.
After lunch provided by NATCO, students were challenged to write and perform in skits on “Tech” topics. The dynamic group met the challenge and had a great time. Amazon Gift Cards and a set of wireless Bluetooth headphones were awarded as prizes.
NATCO’s nonprofit arm, South Shore Foundation, is a sponsor of the Marion County Youth Leadership Development Program, which is designed to identify and strengthen leadership skills in youth and to build their self-confidence as they learn to serve their schools and communities. It was founded on the premise that the youth of today will serve as the leaders of tomorrow.
Any eighth-grade student from Marion County interested in participating on next school year's South-Shore Marion County Youth Leadership Team may obtain an application from their school counselor, the Marion County Extension Office (870) 449-6349.
