Back in 1997, Jeff Jeffers was a student at the Missouri Auction School. Now the CEO and principal auctioneer of Selkirk Auctioneers and Appraisers in St. Louis’ Central West End, is also an instructor at the school.
He said he enjoys watching the transformation students make in just a day or two. "This is not difficult. It’s uncomfortable, there’s no doubt about that, but it’s not difficult if you understand that repetition is the mother of all skill," he said.
Maria Altman of KWMU, the St. Louis NPR Affiliate, visited the gallery to capture the story of the Missouri Auction School, with Jeff and the students in action.
