 Worcester Co. Schools mourning loss of Board President - 47abc (

On July 30, the Worcester County Board of Education was notified of the sudden loss of our Board of Education President, Mr. Eric W. Cropper, Sr. He leaves behind his wife, Bess, and three children, and an incredible legacy as a leader in the Worcester County Public School system.

We have created this GoFundMe to help support the family with funeral and memorial expenses, and given his dedication to the education of all young people in our community, we would like to help fund scholarships for his three children to attend college.

All proceeds will go directly to the family.
