It eventually caught the eye of Texas Southern University, and they chose to present Evoni with a $16,000 scholarship. La Marque Waffle House employee, Evoni Williams, 18, was working behind the counter when an elderly customer with an oxygen tank was having a tough time to cut his food.
"Evoni always has a smile on her face", said Waffle House manager Mundarius Wright. Amid clanking plates, a sizzling grill and customers on the go, an elderly man timidly asked Williams to cut his ham. Meanwhile, another customer who was moved by her kindness chose to snap a photo.
"My hands are not up to par", Charpentier told KVUE. The post went viral on Facebook and has received over 121,000 likes and over 62,000 shares. This may seem small but to him, I'm sure it was huge.
Texas Southern University gave Williams a $16,000 scholarship, which will allow her to fulfill her dream of attending college to study business management. Texas Southern University has reportedly assigned a counselor to help Williams begin her degree, KHOU reported. "It just came from the heart", Williams said. "It's so wonderful that the younger generation cares about the older generation".

A representative for the university said, "Your act of kindness is exactly the kind of student we want at Texas Southern University".
The mayor of La Marque, Bobby Hocking, chose to express his gratitude for Williams as well - by declaring March 8, 2018 as Evoni "Nini" Williams Day, a day in her honor.
"That's me all the time giving helping serving", said Williams.
"It's something I would do any other day", she told KVUE-TV.
