Waitress at Waffle House gets $16,000 college scholarship for cutting up an elderly customer’s food
Evoni Williams, 18, works as a waitress at a Waffle House in La Marque, TX, to save up for college. One of her customers, an elderly man who’d recently undergone a surgery, was finding it difficult to cut up his ham.
The man told Williams that his hands weren’t ‘working too good’. He was also on oxygen and struggling to breathe. That’s when she took his plate and cut up his food.
Her kind gesture didn’t go unnoticed (it got recorded on camera) and caught the attention of Texas Southern University, which surprised her with a scholarship totaling $16,000 – $4,000 for each of four semesters.
