In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Metal Exchange Corporation in 2014, the founding Lefton Family established a scholarship fund for the benefit of college-age children of full-time employees of MEC and our Family of Companies. As a tribute to founder Morris Lefton, The Metal Exchange Corporation Morris Lefton Memorial Scholarship is awarded to up to four recipients annually.
Each recipient of the $2,000 scholarship is eligible for renewal for an additional three years. Scholarships may be used at qualifying two- or four-year colleges, universities or non-profit trade or vocational schools. To protect the privacy of all applicants, The Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation has been selected to administer the scholarship program. Click here for application details. The deadline to apply this year is May 1, 2017.
The Lefton Family is proud of our continued success and recognizes the contribution made by each team member. We hope these scholarships will help to make college a reality for the deserving recipients and their families. We are honored to be able to give back to the people that have made our success possible, celebrate our 40th anniversary and memorialize Morris Lefton. We wish you the best of luck in the applications process.
