New Top Executive for Fairbanks Visitors Center
The Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center in Fairbanks named Tania Clucas as its new Executive Director.
In that role, Clucas manages and promotes the use of the building and oversees the development of fundraising opportunities to sustain and maintain the facilities and grounds of the center, named for the former Doyon CEO. Since 2008, the building has hosted the visitor information center for Explore Fairbanks and the Interior branch of the Alaska Public Lands Information Center, as well as its own year-round exhibits, open to the public free of charge.
Clucas comes to the position after most recently serving as legislative staff. Previously, she was a research program manager at UAF, where she earned degrees in geography and science management. Additionally, she is well known in the Interior as both a volunteer and volunteer recruiter.
