August 2022: Back to School for our Summer Intern

Office of Public Affairs

Region 14 said goodbye to our summer intern Lexi Schaefer on August 5 who returns to St. Louis University Law School for her final year.  Ms. Schaefer was a great asset to the Region and worked extensively with her mentor Field Attorney Rochelle Balentine, and supervisor Officer-in-Charge Susan Wade-Wilhoit. She assisted with legal research on thorny issues, drafting settlement agreements, preparing investigation reports, and taking affidavits.  She also helped field attorneys prepare cases for trial by analyzing pleadings, evidence and working with witnesses.  She tackled each task with enthusiasm, no matter how great or how small.  We will truly miss her collegial can-do approach and wish her the best of luck in law school and in her legal career.

Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees, employers, and unions from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year. Region 14 serves areas in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma from its Regional Office in St. Louis, its Subregional Office in Overland Park, and its Resident Office in Tulsa.
