The artwork which you see displayed in our office has been created by six Hillsborough High School Seniors who have applied for the Richard M. Nadler DMD, PA 30th Anniversary Scholarship. One student will be selected to receive this scholarship based on their artwork submitted for display as well as letters of recommendation from two people who were influential in the selection of fine arts as their college path.
This scholarship is our way of expressing thanks to the Township as well as the people of Hillsborough for having been hosts for our dental practice for the past 30 plus years. You may ask why would a dentist sponsor a Fine Art scholarship? Wouldn’t a career in science or medicine make more sense? Well, you may already know that I originally began my working career as an architect. I actually practiced that profession for a period of some ten years before returning to school to become a dentist. One of the reasons that I chose architecture as my original career was because of my love of drawing and art. I have always had tremendous respect and admiration for those creative individuals who have the ability to express their imagination through the visual arts – whether it is on paper, canvas, film or in three-dimensional sculpture. So, I decided to also encourage a potential, local, up-and-coming young artist to pursue his or her career in the arts.
I hope that in some small way this scholarship expresses the gratitude that our entire team has for the people of Hillsborough. It is you wonderful people who have made coming to work each day our life’s fulfillment.
