Boxing organization giving college scholarships

(AP) -- Rebecca Maine was a heroin addict as a teenager. At times, she didn't see living very long as a viable option.

Now, Maine is a student at the Penn State campus in DuBois and has Olympic aspirations as a boxer.

Considering how far she has come since first trying heroin at age 16 to "going on to using it with more dangerous means" until she was 21, counting out Maine would seem foolhardy.
