The Geier Family Makes A

$150,000 Gift Towards the


HPU Fund for Extraordinary


High Point University parents, Diane and Jay Geier of Atlanta, Georgia recently made a gift of $150,000 to the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education.

“As a university, our mission is to support our students throughout their educational journey,” says HPU President, Dr. Nido Qubein. “With support from our HPU families, like the Geiers, we are able to provide $75 million in annual scholarship funding for today’s students through the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education.”

As a young adult, Jay explored different routes of business where he discovered a passion for marketing, entrepreneurship, and using his skills to help others. His entrepreneurial spirit further progressed during college while he was attending the University of Alabama. This period was very formative in Jay’s life as he had the chance to explore his skills through the development of several self-started businesses. Subsequently, Jay decided that he wanted to help children through supporting doctors and their health care practices. This desire to help healthcare providers led Jay to start the Scheduling Institute, located in Alpharetta, Georgia. The Scheduling Institute began as a training program for front desk personnel at health care locations. Since then, the company has shifted its focus towards helping health care professionals to be their own advocates through seminars, classes and on-site trainings.

For Diane and Jay, modeling generosity plays a large part in how they interact with their community and the rest of the world.

“In our family, philanthropy is a core value that we teach to our children and is a focus within our business,” says Jay Geier. “We have always been active in giving to organizations where our children are involved. We believe in leading by example and guiding them on how to make a lasting impact on areas that are important to them. HPU’s mission is similar to the Scheduling Institute’s, and I believe that by supporting the school, my family can help to make a lasting impact on the future generations of students.”

Family is a number one priority for the Geiers. Before Diane and Jay were married, Diane attended the University of Tennessee for advertising and marketing. Once the Geiers started their family, Diane took on the responsibility of raising the children and ensuring that they were brought up with the family values of generosity and gratitude. Diane and Jay have three children, Flint, Jack and Annabelle. Flint graduated from Cornell University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in finance and entrepreneurship. While at Cornell, he was an offensive lineman on the D1 varsity football team. Currently, Flint is the membership director at the Scheduling Institute, as well as a speaker and practice growth consultant. Jack graduated from HPU in December 2021 as a member of the Class of 2022. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in sport management and will be working as an associate account manager at Collabera, a software sales company. Annabelle graduated from the University of Tennessee where she was active in various intramural sports and philanthropy projects. In May of 2021, she began her career as a marketing assistant for the Scheduling Institute.
