What's Happening in Downtown Mooresville



Good evening everyone!

The Mooresville Downtown Commission (MDC) is proud to be an active member of the NC Main Street Program*. Each year, as part of the NC program, the MDC has a chance to nominate a "Main Street Champion".


Main Street Champions are dedicated individuals who have an ongoing commitment to downtown improvements and strong communities. Someone that consistently steps up to invest time, energy and money in the community and work to improve the quality of life. Downtown Mooresville is excited to announce that Hugh Sykes has been recognized as the 2020 Downtown Mooresville Main Street Champion!


Hugh was nominated by the MDC for the award due to his 12+ years as a dedicated Board Member and his numerous contributions as a longtime volunteer. Originally from Mooresville, Hugh is well-known throughout the community. His reputation as an established Downtown advocate combined with his easygoing, good-humored, caring demeanor has helped strengthen local relationships for the MDC.


Hugh has owned and operated several businesses in Downtown Mooresville and his diverse professional experience and amiable approach bring valuable perspectives to the MDC Board of Directors, and is always ready to lend a hand, an ear, or his support. Hugh’s long-standing loyalty and beloved enthusiasm indeed makes him a cherished champion for Downtown Mooresville, and we are so extremely grateful for his service!

Hugh was named Downtown Mooresville’s 2020 Main Street Champion during a virtual recognition ceremony by the North Carolina Main Street Program on March 11, 2021.

Congratulations Hugh!

*The NC Main St. Program is a part of the NC Dept. of Commerce that helps give guidance on preservation based downtown revitalization and economic development across the state. The MDC has been a member since 2009.
