Waffle House Employee Receives $16000 Scholarship For Good Deed

Waffle House worker given $16,000 scholarship after

In her caption, Wolf explains that she heard Charpentier tell Williams that his hands "didn't work too good" and points out that he is using an oxygen machine and "struggling to breathe".

A Texas Waffle House employee is being rewarded for her act of kindness towards a customer that was caught on camera. Mayor Bobby Hocking presented a proclamation to 18-year-old Evoni Williams at her Waffle House location.

Without hesitation, she took his plate and began cutting up his ham, the post reads.

Even though Evoni was extremely busy, she didn't hesitate. I'm thankful to have seen this act of kindness and caring at the start of my day while everything in this world seems so negative.

'Your act of gratitude and your act of service to someone else is exactly the type of student that we want at Texas Southern University, ' Wendell Williams, assistant to the principal, said as he handed the teen the $16,000 check.

The photo of Williams and the man was shared on Facebook by Laura Wolf, who was touched by the young woman's gesture.

'I wasn't raised to bash people or anything, ' she said. Evoni is working at Waffle House in order to save up for college.

Williams said was taken aback by the outpouring, KTRK-TV said.

The city mayor proclaimed March 8 to be Evoni "Nini" Williams Day. "That just meant something to me", Laura Wolf said.

Texas Southern University says they have assigned a counselor to help Williams enroll at the university and start her degree plan.

The post even attracted the attention of La Marque city officials and scouts from Texas Southern University-who made a decision to offer Williams a helping hand.
