The Sequim Prairie Garden Club awarded two scholarships to recent Sequim High School graduates at the club’s meeting on Aug. 5.

A $1,500 scholarship went to Matthew Martin Dahll, who is considering a career as a tree arborist. He plans to attend Peninsula College and to acquire a commercial drivers license to operate large trucks for future employers, garden club representatives said.

Dahll said he enjoys working outside and using equipment used in the tree service business such as bucket trucks, power saws and chipping machines.

“I’ve learned a lot about the many species of trees,” he said. “I’m hoping that with the help of scholarships, I can get my ISA Arborist certification and my CDL license.”

A $500 scholarship went to Hannah Gloor, who has applied to attend Western Washington University and University of Washington. Her career choices include is architecture and botany.

“Because architecture is my passion, I love to do design and math,” Gloor said. “Architecture is also a great career to aim for because I want to design ecological and environmental buildings. I want to do my part for humanity and the ecosystem.”
