Desert Imaging presents $5k gift to help educate nurses, honor Kharisma James

A $5,000 gift from Desert Imaging will go to nursing scholarships at the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing, helping to educate the next generation of nurses and reduce the nursing shortage in West Texas.

In honor of nurses week, TTUHSC El Paso announced that it will match Desert Imaging’s gift to help establish the Kharisma James Legacy Scholarship Award.

The award has been created to honor James’ memory as a dedicated, confident woman and compassionate nurse and mother. The matching money will come from the many donors who contribute to TTUHSC El Paso’s President’s Excellence Fund.

Kharisma James was a graduate of the Hunt School of Nursing and an operating room/surgery nurse at The Hospitals of Providence when she passed away in 2018. Kharisma was struck and killed as she shielded three children from an oncoming car in an El Paso elementary school parking lot.

Desert Imaging is a locally-owned and operated diagnostic imaging company with four clinics in El Paso and two mobile mammography clinics; their gift was presented May 3 during an event for TTUHSC El Paso alumni and supporters at Park Tavern in Downtown El Paso.

El Pasoans are invited to take part in honoring Kharisma James by donating to her legacy scholarship award.
