In today’s news, a young lady was rewarded for genuinely being a kind person.
TEXAS – On March 3rd, Evoni Williams, 18, clocked in to her job at the Waffle House in La Marque. It was to be a normal work day for her.
But on that day, Evoni who recently graduated and gained employment in order to save up money for college; did something good-hearted people do all the time. This time however, the act was caught on camera. The act would go viral, and Evoni’s surprising reward would bring the high school graduate to tears.
KTRK obtained surveillance video from that day showing customer Adrian Charpentier, who had just had surgery and was unable to cut a portion of his breakfast.
“I had no coordination or strength in my hands,” he said.
So he asked Evoni for help. Even though she was extremely busy, she didn’t hesitate.
“I was never raised to bash people,” she said. “I was raised to help and try to give blessings.”
She got something she never expected for that kind deed. Not only was she honored by her town’s mayor, after the photo and story went viral, Texas Southern University surprised her with a $16,000 scholarship.
She says she will still work at Waffle House.
So happy for her! Rarely do people get rewarded for the good deeds they do without hesitation… It’s so good to see a good person win in life. Just being herself, earned Evoni a college scholarship, which most certainly will change the course of her future.
Thank you to whoever decided to give the scholarship and Congrats to you Evoni!
