Rachel Canning, the 18-year-old New Jersey high school cheerleader who was in the news for suing her parents for child support, may not need mom and dad's money after all.


Canning made headlines when she moved out of her parents' house and sued them because they refused to pay her bills. She eventually dropped the suit and moved back in with them last month. This week, she found out that she's won a $56-thousand scholarship from Western New England University in Springfield, Massachusetts and will be attending there in the fall to study bio-medical engineering.
