In 2019, Choice One Engineering lost one of its founders, Professional Surveyor Thomas L. Coverstone. Choice One was founded in 1994, and Tom was a driving force and integral part of Choice One’s early and continued success. Tom was always willing to share his time and talent for the Choice One team, was willing to teach others and pass on his knowledge and experience, and was eager to support those around him, from coworkers to clients. An avid auto racing fan, Tom spent his time both in the office and out of the office appreciating the joys of life including friends, family, and experiences. Tom was a strong, positive influence on his peers and greatly enhanced the positive company culture of Choice One. Indeed, Tom was well-known both inside and outside of Choice One for his broad smile and his positive attitude in any situation. From day one, Tom put others first.


To memorialize Tom and his Choice One legacy, Choice One will be offering a $5,000 scholarship and a one-semester co-op/internship opportunity to one college student who exhibits the qualities embodied by Tom.



Scholarship applications will be accepted via email until September 1, 2023. Interviews will be conducted the week of September 4, 2023, and the selection of scholarship recipient will be announced no later than September 15, 2023. Please click the button below to download the application.
