March 6, 2023 (CLEVELAND, OHIO) The Saint Luke’s Foundation is pleased to announce the promotions of Sharon Edmond to Administrative Officer and Dionne Huffman to Program Coordinator.


“Sharon Edmond and Dionne Huffman infuse extraordinary qualities to the staff of Saint Luke’s Foundation. Jointly their work and spirit are vital to our operations. Both have consistently gone beyond the call of duty to carry out the values of the Foundation. Their compassion, work ethic, and overall job performance have positioned them both for well-earned job growth opportunities,” according to Timothy Tramble Sr., President and CEO of the Saint Luke’s Foundation.


Huffman started at the Saint Luke’s Foundation in 2021, as the Program Assistant. Specifically, she will handle the administrative and clerical functions in support of the day-to-day operations of the Foundation’s program staff and the Foundation’s grantmaking process. Dionne previously served in the public relations sector in partnership with Cleveland Public Schools, and most recently served in the lottery industry traveling statewide to help facilitate training seminars and special events.


Edmond previously worked with the American Heart Association, The Diabetes Partnerships, and CDF Freedom Schools before joining the Saint Luke’s Foundation in 2018. After joining the Saint Luke’s Foundation in 2018 as a volunteer front desk receptionist, Sharon Edmond has held several positions, most recently as the front desk receptionist. Edmond graduated from Hampton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.


“For these reasons, it is in the best interest of the Foundation and the populations we serve that we make deeper investments in the tremendous assets we have in Sharon Edmond and Dionne Huffman,” said Tim Tramble Sr.
