A great discrepancy is currently developing in the US between the numbers of boys & girls of Caribbean background enrolling in college. Nancy Lopez explores the different aspirations of Caribbean American teenagers & discusses why the education system appears to be failing the boys from this community.

At just eight years old, NANCY LOPEZ received her first set of golf clubs and quickly fell in love with the game of golf. With guidance from her father, she was a natural and learned the game quickly, winning the New Mexico Women's Amateur tournament by the age of twelve, along with several other amateur titles. Becoming a professional golfer while in college, Lopez won Rookie of the Year and Player of the Year Awards in 1978, and despite discrimination because of her Mexican heritage, she soon became the darling of women's golf and a sports icon. Over the course of her career, Lopez received the Player of the Year Award four times and had forty-eight victories--three of them in major tournaments--and became the first woman to receive the Frances Ouimet Award for lifelong contributions to golf. Formerly married to professional baseball player Ray Knight, Lopez has three daughters and lives in Florida and Alabama.Visit Nancy at her website-- http://www.nancylopezgolf.com/en/home.aspx
