The Sequim Prairie Garden Club selected Sequim High School senior Denny Grubb as the recipient of the club’s $1,000 scholarship for 2014.

Grubb’s goal is to be an agriculture teacher. He plans to attend Peninsula College for two years and then transfer to Washington State University and obtain a degree in agriculture education. He hopes someday to return to Sequim High School as a teacher in that field.

Grubb said he loves living in Sequim and that for such a small town, the community provides many opportunities for high school students. Grubb and his mother relocated to Sequim in his junior year from Moorpark, Calif., and said he likes the small-town life much better.

Grubb serves as FFA chairman of the Community Committee and organizes events that involve giving back to the community. He has volunteered for the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce, volunteering to weed and clean green spaces within the city, including doing work at Pioneer Memorial Park. Last summer, he enjoyed working with community volunteer and Sequim Prairie Garden Club member Emily Westcott. He also recently helped to plant an Arbor Day tree in the park.
