A Cultivated Mindset Wins Small Business Innovation Award
A Cultivated Mindset (ACM) is to be honored in the Small Business Innovation category by Pride Magazine in its annual gala highlighting the impact of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) in the African-American community.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Jan. 5, 2015 - PRLog -- The focus this year has been on Queen City where separate categories of achievers have been shortlisted for the awards. These comprise of one STEAM Innovative Teacher, one STEAM Innovative Small Business, one STEAM Corporation or Institution, and one STEAM Youth for their STEAM integration and innovative practices in the community categories.
Patrick A. Hill the Executive Director of ACM is justifiably quite proud of the honor bestowed on him, as he feels that he has brought credit to the community; something that means a great deal to him. Says Patrick, “ACM is all about innovation, and considering that this is also the central theme of the awards this year, we are over the moon, that we could showcase that an African-American design & development firm is at the forefront of innovation.”
This only validates what Dee Dixon, President & CEO of Pride Communications said of this year’s awards, “This year’s theme ‘INSPIRING INNOVATION WITH STEAM’ will celebrate the importance of STEAM integration and innovative practices in the African-American community. I want to invite the entire community to come out and join us as we acknowledge this year’s winners.”
