He manages the day-to-day operations of the academy, including regulating the outdoor driving range, indoor facilities and maintenence equipment for the Academy. He also plans fundraiser activities, including the annual UMES Art Shell Celebrity Golf Tournament at Great Hope Golf Course. Furthermore, Cropper has taught introduction golf classes to the student body since the return of the program.
Previous to coming back to Princess Anne, Cropper worked for the D.C. Department of Environmental Services, D.C. Department of Recreation and most recently the MJC Management and Consulting Services.
Cropper graduated from UMES (then Maryland State College) in 1967 with a degree in physical education after playing as a double-sport athlete in Princess Anne. He played tight end for the football team, earning All-CIAA honors in 1966, and also played on the baseball team at first base and right field. He earned his Master's Degree in 1975 from National Graduate University and was inducted into the UMES Athletics Hall of Fame in 1982.
