Past and Present: Chemetria and Charles Spencer

Charles Spencer and his mother Chemetria Spencer-Jarmon recreate the 2005 photograph next to the West Valley High School track on Tuesday, May 24, 2016. Chemetria moved up to Fort Wainwright from Alabama in 1997 and Charles and her daughters Demetria and Dominique came up in 1998. She now works for the pipeline. Charles graduated from North Pole High School and studied Health Education in North Dakota. He now works for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District's ABEL Program. "We love Alaska. I never thought I'd say it," said Chemetria. Have you or someone you know had their photograph taken by a News-Miner photographer 10 or more years ago?
