Alums in the Community: Vitale, Barbosa

UMBC is proud of all that our alumni go on to achieve, and we’re especially proud that we’ve graduated so many people who bring their talents and skills back to their communities. Today, we recognize Clolita Vitale ’75, theatre, a former UMBC employee who has just been appointed to the USM Foundation Board of Directors, and Ray Barbosa ’09, a former Retriever basketball player who, after playing professionally for several years, has been honored by his high school, and is now coaching in his home state of Pennsylvania.

In addition to her degree from UMBC, she holds a B.S. from the University of Maryland University College and a J.D. from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. She worked at UMBC as a director of procurement before becoming University Counsel, a position she held until she moved on to Constellation Energy (later Exelon) in 2008. Now retired, she continues to volunteer with Senior Legal Services and the Esperanza Center in Baltimore.
