In March 2014, Rachel Canning sued her parents for tuition & living expenses after being kicked out. Now, back home with her family, the teen graduated high school with a major scholarship.
Rachel Canning, 18, proved herself to be a star student when she graduated her private high school on June 5 with a $56,000 scholarship towards her college education at Western New England University. The teenager reunited with her family after agreeing to dismiss the lawsuit against her parents, which led a judge to call her “spoiled” in court.
Rachel Canning Graduates High School With A $56k Scholarship
Wow. You have to admit that this is impressive.
The same teenager that took her parents to court in March 2014 demanding that they pay her living expenses and school tuition has just graduated high school with a massive scholarship.
Rachel Canning, once described as a “spoiled brat” by Morristown Superior Court Judge Peter Bogaard, received $56,000 towards her education at Western New England University in Springfield, Mass.
The teen graduated Morris Catholic High School on June 5 according to her friend, Matt MacMillan‘s, Instagram.
“Didn’t think this day would come,” Matt captioned a graduation photo with a now-blonde Rachel.
A Twitter account allegedly belonging to Rachel also posted the picture, writing, “Graduated with my best friend.”
Another tweet reveals that Rachel is apparently working as a waitress, which means she is making her own money even though she is living at home with her parents again.
This is a major turnaround for Rachel, who once demanded $800 a week for living expenses while accusing her parents of abuse, neglect, and causing her eating disorder.
