NATIONAL CITY CORPORATION TO WELCOMESEVENTH-GRADE STOCKHOLDER AND CLASSMATES TO ANNUAL MEETING

 CLEVELAND, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- When the directors of National City Corporation (NYSE: NCC) call to order the annual meeting of stockholders this Morning in Louisville, they will be joined by one of the corporation's youngest stockholders and her seventh-grade classmates.
 National City Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Edward B. Brandon has invited 12-year-old Mariah Weyland and 14 of her fellow students from Louisville's Holy Trinity Elementary School to experience their first stockholders' meeting.
 "I think it's important that our young people learn at an early age about business and how it operates," said Brandon. "After all, the future success of our business -- of all business -- depends upon them."
 Mariah owns more than 350 shares of National City stock. She has owned stock all her life, beginning with a gift from her grandfather when she was born.
 "I hope to learn firsthand how stockholders' meetings go and what being a stockholder is all about," said Mariah. "I'm interested in swimming and baseball and all the usual things that a seventh-grader does. But stocks have something to do with my future. I want to know what's out there and learn what businesses are doing well and which aren't."
 Mariah's class is playing the Stock Market Game, a competition involving schools throughout Kentucky. Student teams are given a hypothetical $100,000 to invest in stocks of their choice, which they research and follow closely.
 "We picked National City because everybody needs to use banks to get loans and savings accounts, especially after graduation," said Mariah. "We also picked Delta, because summer is coming up and people will be making airline reservations, so we think that stock will do well."
 Mariah's teacher, Mary Klem, said the Stock Market Game and National City's invitation to the students is part of a national trend to focus more attention on economics in the classroom.
 "There needs to be a real tie-in between the classroom and the business community," said Ms. Klem. "National City is giving our students a terrific opportunity to learn what a stockholders' meeting is really like, not by reading about it, but by sitting there watching the presentation in person."
 Mariah's parents, Edith and Bill Weyland, say they are pleased that National City has invited the children to participate in the corporation's annual meeting. The Weylands have tried to expose their five children to the world of business, showing them how to balance their own checkbooks and make their own bank deposits. Mariah has caught on almost too well.
 "Believe it or not, I can't get the business section of the morning paper anymore," Mr. Weyland said. "She leaves me the funnies and the sports!"
 "This will be an opportunity for Mariah and her class to actually see how big companies work," said Mrs. Weyland. "They will see firsthand that big companies are owned by real people just like them."
 Brandon will acknowledge the students in his remarks to stockholders and meet with them after the meeting.
 "Mariah's class is certainly the most extraordinary group we've had attend a National City annual meeting -- and arguably, the most important," Brandon said. "We want this meeting to have a lasting, positive impact on these youngsters, so they will stay curious and involved in the business world."
 National City Corporation is a $28 billion diversified financial services company headquartered in Cleveland. National City operates banks and other financial service subsidiaries principally in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
