A young Waffle House waitress received a $16,000 scholarship after a photo of her helping an elderly customer went viral.

Evoni Williams, 18, was working at the Waffle House in La Marque, Texas, Saturday, when a customer asked her to help him cut his food.

“He was like, ‘My hands are not functioning too well.’ He needed me to cut his food. And I did,” Williams said.

“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,” Wolf told KHOU-TV.

Williams kind gesture went viral on social media, and on Thursday, it was returned with a big surprise.

On Thursday, the City of La Marque awarded Williams with her own day, and she also received a $16,000 scholarship donated by Texas Southern University — a life-changing gift for a girl who still says she did nothing special.

“It’s something I would do any other day,” Williams said.

Texas Southern University says they have assigned a counselor to help Williams enroll at the university and start her degree plan. She wants to study business management.
