The future looks bright for Lancaster High School graduate Josh Hepburn, who had to work hard to overcome a family tragedy that once had him very angry at the world.
His parents split up when he was about 5, leaving his mother, Gwendolyn, alone to raise him and his two brothers.
Because of back problems, his mother could no longer work and was struggling to provide for the family, Josh said.
She stopped disciplining the boys, leaving them to roam and do whatever they chose. Josh said he began stealing cigarettes and starting small fires.
