LA MARQUE, Texas - A teenager who took the time to help a man in need was honored on Thursday for her act of kindness at the La Marque Waffle House where she works.
The city of La Marque also proclaimed March 8, 2018, Evoni “Nini" Williams Day in the city after seeing her act of kindness that went viral on Facebook this week.
Earlier this week, Waffle House customer Laura Wolf snapped a photo of Williams cutting up food for a partially disabled man during a busy shift at the restaurant.
Williams couldn't stop the tears as Texas Southern University handed her an oversized check for $16,000.
A representative for the university said, “Your act of kindness is exactly the kind of student we want at Texas Southern University. “
The scholarship can be used in $4,000 increments per semester.
