A worker from a Waffle House in La Marque, Texas, was spotted helping an elderly customer cut up his food, after she saw him struggling with his oxygen tank.
After Evoni's inspiring act of kindness, Texas Southern University offered a $16,000 scholarship. A picture of Evoni, an employee of the Waffle House, cutting up food for a customer who was unable to do so himself, was clicked by another customer and shared on Facebook. Williams was reportedly working full-time at the Waffle House restaurant in order to earn money for college.
"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. That just meant something to me".
That picture went viral and inspired countless others, leading one university to grant Williams a scholarship, KVUE-TV reported. The post went viral on Facebook and has received over 121,000 likes and over 62,000 shares.

Abe and finance officials have denied any wrongdoing in the scandal, which has caused parliamentary sessions to grind to a halt. Sagawa later acknowledged destroying some documents related to the scandal, triggering an investigation by authorities.
Wolf told KHOU-TV that William's kindness, despite how busy the restaurant was, really made an impression on her.
"I was never raised to bash people. and was raised to try and help, and try and give", Williams told a local television station.
Even better? Folks at Texas Southern University aren't the only ones paying attention to Evoni. "It's so wonderful that the younger generation cares about the older generation". As way of thanks and showing his gratitude for Evoni's kindness, he declared March 8 2018 as Evoni "Nini" Williams Day.
