Malinda Richbourg, an employee with the ITS Enterprise Applications – Data Warehousing, Analytics and Visualization group, died Feb. 17.
Richbourg graduated from UNCG in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science degree in home economics. She began work at UNCG in 1974 in Undergraduate Admissions, and in 2008, she retired as the associate director for operations. She returned to UNCG as a part-time employee with ITS in 2009, assisting in duplicate PIDM resolution as part of the Data Management group.
Vice Chancellor of Information Technology Services Donna Heath remembers about her:
“Malinda was both a people person and a data person, a rare combination of skills. Everywhere she went, she either already knew someone, or through conversation quickly made a new friend. Her eye for process and attention to detail helped UNCG admissions grow from the pre-computing era through to our Banner world today. UNCG is most fortunate to have had her to faithfully serve her alma mater for 45 years,”
There are no current plans for a memorial service, but there will be a campus-based gathering at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Malinda B. & David L. Richbourg Endowed Athletic Scholarship at UNCG.
