Woman's act of kindness at Texas Waffle House goes viral, earns praise

"I had no coordination, feeling, or strength in my hands", says customer Adrian Charpentier. Without any hesitation, Williams grabbed a knife and fork and started to cut smaller pieces so that the ailing man could eat his food.

The image which went viral was taken by Waffle House customer Laura Wolf, who told KHOU-TV: "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. He was also on oxygen and struggling to breathe", Wolf wrote.

'This may seem small to him, I'm sure it was huge. "If we could all be like this waitress & take time to offer a helping hand". She wants to study business management. In a few days, authorities from TSU rewarded her with a scholarship for $16,000 (worth approximately Rs 10,00,000). So many, in fact, that it caught the eye of the town's mayor, Bobby Hocking, who dedicated March 8 in Williams' honor.

Last Saturday, Laura Wolf stopped off at a Waffle House in her neck of the woods in Texas for a meal, and what she witnessed there-and what she did afterward-ended up changing the life of a teen Waffle House employee.

Evoni Williams, an 18-year-old waitress at a Waffle House in La Marque, Texas, received a college scholarship after a heartwarming photo of her cutting up an elderly customer's food went viral, Yahoo! news reports. "And I did", Williams said according to KVUE. "I was raised to help and try to give blessings". What's more, it soon grabbed the Mayor's attention and many other people from Texas Southern University.
