Scott Geesey, CJE *
Serving central and northern Pennsylvania since 1999
A veteran journalist since his high school days, Scott was a broadcaster for 17 years in TV, radio and print. During his talk radio days he did over 1,000 interviews on all subjects.

What’s Scott’s favorite phrase? Yearbooking is supposed to be FUN. And he does everything he can to make it so.

We love working with Scott!
Scott has provided training to both the advisers and our yearbook staff and constantly has helped with innovative ideas to increase sales. Whenever we have a question or we need assistance with the book, Mr. Geesey responds nearly immediately with helpful feedback and solutions for our problem. Scott makes regular visits to our staff to ensure that all of our needs are met and to offer suggestions for how we can improve both design and sales of our yearbook.

Scott always come through
Jostens Yearbook Publishing has my sincerest recommendation. This was my first year as adviser of the Barker staff at Bradford High. Without our sales representative, Scott Geesey, our State College plant consultant, Micah Martin, and Jostens Yearbook Avenue Online, I would have been lost in an abyss of yearbook responsibilities. Anytime that I thought my staff made an irreparable mistake, Scott or Micah would pull through and fix whatever we needed.

Scott calmed my fears
When I first took on the role of yearbook adviser, I was a bit nervous but Scott did whatever he could to calm my fears. He is quick to respond to any email or phone call and tries to fix the problem or answer a question as fast as he is able. He made sure to check in with me on a regular basis either through personal meetings with my staff and myself or just through a quick email. I can say I would not have been as successful without Scott’s help and guidance.
