Johnny Willing

Hi, my name is Johnny Willing, and I’m a junior from Mechanicsville, Virginia. I intend to major in Economics and Linguistics, but I’m also interested in music and international relations. When I’m not in class or in the PSA office, you might find me on my laptop planning a trip to some far-off land, with my headphones on listening to classical music, or practicing Korean with friends. I love being part of the PSA team, and I look forward to another semester of helping William & Mary students find and apply for all kinds of scholarships!


Rachel Savage

Hello! My name is Rachel Savage, and I'm a junior from Baltimore, Maryland who is beyond excited to begin assisting you in the PSA office this semester! While I'm not quite sure what it is that I'd like to study, there is truly no limit to what I hope to learn and do; some of my primary interests include English, art history, anthropology, and neuroscience, though I also see the potential for careers in fields related to education or special education as well. In addition to spending time in the PSA office, I plan to get involved in organizations such as Campus Buddies and the photography club, all while finding time to continue feeding my obsessions with classic novels, Jurassic Park, and The Office. Once again, I look forward to working with you!

I am part of the Astronomy Club and the Model Rocketry Club on campus, and I play sousaphone in the William and Mary Pep Band. I also enjoy backpacking, hiking, and outdoor recreation in general. I can't wait to help you reach your goals as I "learn the ropes" with PSA team!

Nora Pollard

Hi, I'm Nora, from Arlington, Virginia.  I'm majoring in French & Francophone Studies and Philosophy, but I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for English.  Aside from being a PSA, I sing in W&M Women's Chorus and tutor students in French grammar.  One of my favorite things to do in Williamsburg is go running on DOG Street when trees' leaves are changing color and the air has that distinct smell of autumn.
