Evoni, 18, explained that Adrien Charpentier needed help because his hands were "not functioning too well".

A seemingly small gesture at a restaurant outside Houston that wasn't part of the job description for a Waffle House waitress has now had a big effect on her life.

Evoni Williams was working at the Waffle House when she noticed a customer, a regular who had recently undergone surgery and was using an oxygen tank, was having trouble cutting up his ham. 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.

But on March 3rd what she did for a sick elderly customer was captured in a photo that went viral.

"My hands are not up to par", Charpentier told KVUE.

Williams has reportedly been working full-time at the Waffle House to earn money toward school. "And I did", Williams told USA Today. As of Sunday, more than 130,000 people had reacted to the Facebook post and almost 7,000 have shared it. "I'm thankful to have seen this act of kindness and caring at the start of my day while everything in this world seems so negative".

He kindly asked Evoni if she could help. Despite the attention, she said she felt it was the right thing to do.

The mayor of La Marque, Bobby Hocking, chose to express his gratitude for Williams as well - by declaring March 8, 2018 as Evoni "Nini" Williams Day, a day in her honor.

"I heard this elderly man tell (Evoni) his hands don't work too good", Wolf posted.

A representative for the university said, "Your act of kindness is exactly the kind of student we want at Texas Southern University". "It just came from the heart", Williams said.

The City honored William's good deed by giving her her own day on Thursday.
