Charles Clement is the president and CEO of the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium in Juneau, Alaska. Charles Clement is also a member of the Alaska Native Brotherhood (ANB). Juneau's Brotherhood Bridge was recently rebuilt and dedicated to the ANB.
Spanning the Mendenhall River, the Brotherhood Bridge originally was built in 1965 to commemorate the ANB and its work for civil rights for Alaska Natives. The bridge featured 10 bronze medallions emblazoned with the ANB crest. The medallions were removed and placed into storage in 2012 when construction on the new bridge began.
Renovations on the bridge were completed in late 2015, with the medallions once again finding a home on the new and improved bridge. The $25 million, 18-month rebuild gave the bridge two new lanes, raising the total to four. Department of Transportation spokesman Jeremy Woodrow says the newly rebuilt bridge, designed for increased traffic, should last 75 years.
Charles Clement holds an undergraduate degree in economics and political science from Northern Arizona University and completed a masters of public administration at the University of Alaska. He also attended Harvard Business School’s executive leadership program.
