Charlotte, NC — Today, Congresswoman Alma S. Adams (NC-12) presented Patrick Hill with the “One Meck” Community Recognition Award. This award is presented to constituents who have exhibited exemplary character and service to improve the quality of life for the citizens of the 12th Congressional District. Patrick Hill, the Executive Director of A Cultivated Mindset, was recognized for his work in providing members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community with training and assistance to create and market their own businesses, as well as for being a finalist for this year’s Black Enterprise Small Business “Techpreneur” of the Year Award.

“I’m proud to present this award to an outstanding member of our community,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Mr. Hill and A Cultivated Mindset have not only helped grow small businesses here in our community, but have worked with many companies across the country. I also want to congratulate Mr. Hill on being named as a finalist in the Black Enterprise Small Business ‘Techpreneur’ of the Year award.”

“On behalf of A Cultivated Mindset, I am honored and humbled to receive the One Meck Community Award,” said Patrick Hill. “I know that we all have a responsibility to design a better future and that starts by making a real difference in how we work, and live in the community. I have always been a firm believer in real problem-solving. Our allegiance will always be to the solution, not a specific technology and I would like to personally thank Congresswoman Adams’ for recognizing the efforts of A Cultivated Mindset and giving us a platform to make a continued difference.”

A Cultivated Mindset (ACM) was started in 2011 by Mr. Patrick Hill as a website and app design business. Mr. Hill created an app for his grandmother, who was battling Alzheimer’s. The app allowed her to exercise her brain and maintain her mental health through exercises. Since then, ACM has worked with over 50 businesses across the country, and has started training sessions in Charlotte that educate students on how to develop skills that will allow them to come up with business solutions using innovative technology.
