Texas waitress' act of kindness results in a $16000 scholarship
Mar 12 2018 by Johnny Bowman
It all started when Evoni Williams, 18, met Adrien Charpentier, a 78-year-old man who was struggling to cut his food while eating at a Waffle House in Texas. Williams' act also caught the eye of Texas Southern University, which surprised her at the proclamation with a scholarship totaling $16,000 - $4,000 for each of four semesters. Amid clanking plates, a sizzling grill and customers on the go, an elderly man timidly asked Williams to cut his ham.
But on February 3, what she did for a sick elderly customer was captured in a photo that went viral.
Wolf's unbelievable photo has since been shared more than 40,000 times on Facebook. This may seem small but to him, I'm sure it was huge. Despite the attention, she said she felt it was the right thing to do.
"Somebody tagged me and it immediately, it just touched my heart", he said.
Not only that, but the mayor of La Marque saw the post.
Senator Cruz, O'Rourke Win Texas Primaries
O'Rourke also led his opponents in the Democrat primary by nearly 40-percent, receiving roughly 600,000 votes. But as pointed out by Chris Cuomo, Cruz himself goes by Ted although his name is actually Rafael.
"I was never raised to bash people. and was raised to try and help, and try and give", Williams told a local television station.
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. "It's so wonderful that the younger generation cares about the older generation".
"It's something I would do any other day", Williams explained.
A representative for the university said, "Your act of kindness is exactly the kind of student we want at Texas Southern University".
