Waffle House Employee Receives $16000 Scholarship For Good Deed

- An inspiring act of kindness at a Houston-area Waffle House has gone viral.

One Texan teen felt the power of gratitude on Thursday after a stranger posted a photo of her cut a meal into smaller bites for a 78-year-old man at the Waffle House during her shift as a server.

In her caption, Wolf explains that she heard Charpentier tell Williams that his hands "didn't work too good" and points out that he is using an oxygen machine and "struggling to breathe". Wolf said Williams immediately took the plate and began cutting up his ham. "This may seem small but to him, I'm sure it was huge". "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", Wolf wrote in her post, which had received 99,000 likes and 47,000 shares as of Friday afternoon.

She says she will still work at Waffle House. Williams said the man is a regular customer, but this was his first time back after a trip to the hospital.

'I wasn't raised to bash people or anything, ' she said.

"City of La Marque is proud to have this thoughtful young woman working in our city and we'd like to acknowledge and honor her", city spokeswoman Colleen Merritt told the newspaper.

"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".

"It just came from the heart", the teen told the television station.

Wolf updated the profile picture on her Facebook page to show a picture of her standing next to Williams.
