Lefton Family

To celebrate Morris Lefton founding Metal Exchange Corporation in 1974, Mike Lefton, current Chairman and CEO, approached his mother, Marlene, and his two sisters about establishing a scholarship to honor the memory of her husband and their father and to celebrate the company he built. Established in 2015, the Metal Exchange Corporation Morris Lefton Memorial Scholarship gives back to the people who made the company successful as it benefits the college-age children of Metal Exchange Corporation and their affiliated company employees who will attend college, university or technical schools in the United States.

Morris Lefton did not have a formal education but held a deep thirst for learning, a trait that inspired the family’s creation of this opportunity for Metal Exchange families.
