Waffle House Employee Receives $16000 Scholarship For Good Deed

Teen Awarded $16000 Scholarship After Act Of Kindness Goes Viral

"He was like, 'My hands are not functioning too well.' He needed me to cut his food".

Wolf's documentation of the waitress' act of kindness soon went viral and thousands of people expressed their desire to reward the teen.

A server at a Houston-area diner has received an unexpected $16,000 college scholarship after details of her act of kindness - cutting an ailing customer's food - spread online. According to Williams, the elderly customer is a regular of the restaurant and he was having a hard time eating.

Wolf updated the profile picture on her Facebook page to show a picture of her standing next to Williams. "If we could all be like this waitress & take time to offer a helping hand". "That just meant something to me", Wolf told KHOU-TV.

18 year old Evoni Williams who works at the Waffle House in La Marque, Texas, was photographed on March 3 by a restaurant customer as she helped a 78-year-old man cut his food into bite-sized portions.

Wolf's fantastic photo has since been shared more than 40,000 times on Facebook.

She said she was working at Waffle House only to save up for college. "That's what made me teary-eyed", Evoni said.

"It was so busy in here, and she actually took the time to stop and hear what he had to say instead of walking past him". Texas Southern University has reportedly assigned a counselor to help Williams begin her degree, KHOU reported.

"Somebody tagged me and it immediately, it just touched my heart", he said. The LaMarque mayor also honored her with a special proclamation for her act of kindness.

Even better? Folks at Texas Southern University aren't the only ones paying attention to Evoni.
