In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Metal Exchange, the Lefton Family established a scholarship fund to benefit the college age children of our full-time employees. As a tribute to our founder and my father, The Metal Exchange Morris Lefton Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to up to four recipients annually.

Each recipient of the $2,000 scholarship will be 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.

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.  Best of luck in the applications process.
