Mr. Morton was the Principal of the Ewen High School. He had a tendency to call Carrie "Cassie" or mispronounce her last name as "Wright". He supported Miss Desjardin in the punishment regarding the shower incident.

When Chris was suspended and out of the prom for refusing to participate in the detention, he stood up to Chris´ father when he fought for the reinstatement of Chris´ prom rights, maintaining that punishment on the way. His attempts to prevent panic after Carrie exploded telekinetically failed.

He was killed via electrocution at the Black Prom.

Mr. Morton was played by Barry Shabaka Henley in Carrie. He was the principal of Ewen High School.

He has a tendency to forget names. He is a man of hands-off policy, who has a tendency to cave in, especially when it comes to people like Chris Hargensen´s father. It is Ms. Desjardin who puts up a fight and forces her father to cave in regarding Chris' punishment.

At the prom, he didn't do anything regarding Carrie's horrible "prank". Later, he tried to calm people down after Carrie´s telekinetic shockwave, but to no avail. He was run over by the panicked participants of the prom. However, it is also thought by most to have been killed at the Black Prom when Carrie electrocuted the wet gym floor.
