Williger is the principal of Jefferson Middle School. She greeted Nate Wright, Francis, Teddy, and Dee Dee Holloway when they arrived at the school. She was also present when Nate breaks his hand. She is angry at Nate for his "horseplay" (she probably thought Nate was playing with a frisbee in the cafeteria) when it was actually Nolan's fault. In the comic strip in September 2008, she is afraid that Nate will cause trouble because Principal Nichols warned her about his behavior.
