As a result of her kindness, Texas Southern University has awarded her with a $16,000 scholarship - she can finally begin studying business management. Williams received praise from all over when she was seen cutting up food for a customer who had recently undergone surgery. She did. Someone snapped a photo that spread across social media. "My cook was calling my name to pick up food I had on the board, but I continued to cut his ham".

"I was just like, 'Sure! That just meant something to me", Wolf said in an interview.

Witnessing the heartrending scene, a patron named Laura Wolf was so touched by the young woman's gesture she took a picture of Williams assisting the partially disabled man and shared it on Facebook.

It eventually caught the eye of Texas Southern University, and they chose to present Evoni with a $16,000 scholarship.

"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".

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.

The City honored William's good deed by giving her her own day on Thursday. Williams was reportedly working full-time at the Waffle House restaurant in order to earn money for college. "She has the character of the type of students we want at Texas Southern University".

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