Area waitress who cut food for diner gets $16K scholarship

TSU surprises La Marque Waffle House worker with scholarship

Teen whose act of kindness for elderly man went viral awarded $16000 scholarship

The moment she was leaning over the counter and cutting the ham was captured by a patron known as Laura Wolf who was sitting behind Charpentier.

Known as "Mr. Karaoke" by the restaurant staff for belting tunes at the local senior center, Charpentier said numerous waitresses kindly cut his food for him. "I need help and the waitresses issue it to me".

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. All because they saw a photo that another customer posted on her Facebook page.

The City honored William's good deed by giving her her own day on Thursday.

"That just meant something to me".

That photo soon touched the hearts of many La Marque residents. "It's so wonderful that the younger generation cares about the older generation".

"There is a lot of love in La Marque, Texas, and we intend to perpetuate that", Hocking said. Despite the attention, she said she felt it was the right thing to do. La Marque is near the university's hometown, Houston.

All roads lead to Texas Southern.

Evoni Williams was pictured by Waffle House customer Laura Wolf, who uploaded the touching scene to Facebook. Not only that, but officials from Texas State University rewarded the humble Waffle House server with a $16,000 scholarship for the school.

A representative for the university said, "Your act of kindness is exactly the kind of student we want at Texas Southern University".

Evoni is looking to get a business or management degree and the cheque given to her works out as 4,000 dollars (£2,883) a semester - a massive helping hand for her to do so.

"We treat customers like family".
