Right on, good deal

A Texas Waffle House employee who spent the past year saving up for college is one step closer to her goal after she received a $16,000 college scholarship from Texas Southern University.

Evoni ‘NeeNee’ Williams, 18, was awarded the scholarship on Thursday during a small ceremony at the LA Marque Waffle House she works at to honor her for helping a partially disabled customer eat his food.

On Saturday, Williams was working a shift at the breakfast eatery when customer Adrian Charpentier came in for something to eat. Charpentier, a regular at the restaurant, recently had surgery and was having trouble cut up his food.


The fact that she did it out of the goodness of her heart makes it that much better.

    Are you sure she was not cutting it to eat it herself? She looks like she likes waffles.
    It appears she has been getting more than her “Fair Share”

    Glad to hear that her act of kindness was rewarded. Rarely happens and sounds like she may be going places. Best of luck in her future endeavors.

    No “guess the race?”

    The sad thing is something like this makes the headlines. Thirty years ago things like this would never have made the local headlines yet alone in a different county. It would just be the kind of thing people do. Still good luck to her.

    Come on Guys, give it a break. Young lady doing the right thing, working a minimum wage job, wanting to go to college, wanting to get ahead in life. What’s not to appreciate about that? Whomever raised her seemed to have done a fine job and should be proud; I hope nothing but the best for “NeeNee” if this small act is an example of her character. Texans raise good kids, these Texans apparently did so. respectfully, Alemaster

    This story was just on my local news. Besides the fact that she’s a really good person, she’s a real, good person. She’ll do well in life.

    She’s good people. It’s good to see that “No good deed goes unpunished” isn’t universal.

  11. Gromit says:

    I’d be proud to have her as a neighbor.

    Someone did right raising her. That person should be commended as well.

    Not just local news for Texas any more, the story has now appeared in UK national papers and is filtering down to Disability groups “good news” newsletter columns. We’ve sent a note of appreciation to Waffle House Corporate in the hope that Miss Williams will receive it, and wish her well for her future.

Play nice.
