In 2004, Terry retired from PennDOT with 35 years of service. He

retirement, he worked as a right of way project manager before
forming his own company, Quality Acquisition Services. When it was
acquired by another firm, he stayed on as a project manager.
Because of his knowledge and expertise in right of way, chapter
members often referred to Terry as “Doctor.” The nickname stuck,
and the award was named the “Dr.” Seighman Award. The first
recipient of the award was Carol Myers, Chapter 9 and associate
member of Chapter 55. Carol is a Senior Right of Way Agent for
