The principal of Pitts High School. His name practically speaks for itself when referring to how high he is above the faculty. Usually his face is never seen, only his hands when they are placed on his desk. His face may have been seen in a flashback as Luann's elementary school principal in the 10/9/2002 and 10/10/2002 comics, but it is unknown whether this is the same Principal Hightower, or perhaps a relative or someone with the same last name.
