Evoni Williams, Waffle House Worker Gets College Scholarship For Act Of Kindness

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

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.

Evoni Williams was pictured by Waffle House customer Laura Wolf, who uploaded the touching scene to Facebook. Williams was reportedly working full-time at the Waffle House restaurant in order to earn money for college. Meanwhile, another customer who was moved by her kindness chose to snap a photo.

"Without hesitation, she took his plate and began cutting up his ham".

"I'm thankful to have seen this act of kindness and caring at the start of my day while everything in this work seems so negative".

He kindly asked Evoni if she could help.

It eventually caught the eye of Texas Southern University, and they made a decision to present Evoni with a $16,000 scholarship. "That just meant something to me", Wolf told KHOU-TV.

"That's me all the time giving helping serving", said Williams.
