Cora Wilson is the sister of Rhonda Wilson. She is a member of The Ultras and takes part in the shower prank. She is in the detention led by Miss Collins. She is nominated Prom Queen but also helps count the ballots. Cora can be seen dancing at the beginning of the prom with The Beak who was her date to the prom. Cora is also seen staring at Carrie when she arrives with Tommy. When Carrie crowned queen, Cora congratulates her by clapping and smiling. She hands her her bouquet and gives her a congratulatory kiss on the cheek. When the prank is pulled on Carrie, Cora looks shocked and disgusted. When Carrie begins using her powers against the students and teachers, Cora goes with Miss Collins to help Tommy Ross, who had been knocked out by the bucket. While trying to revive Tommy, Miss Collins grabs Cora by her ears to see if she had anything to do with the prank on Carrie or not as the lights go off during Carrie's rage. She, Miss Collins, and a few other students pick up Tommy's body and attempt to carry it out but Collins is knocked away from the group, when others bump into them. Miss Collins is then killed, while Cora is thrown out of view, where she presumably burned to death or electrocuted.
Rhonda Wilson is the sister of Cora Wilson. She is a member of The Ultras and takes place in the shower prank.

When the prank is pulled Rhonda seems shocked, but eventually bursts into laughter with everyone else. When Carrie uses her powers against the students and teachers, Rhonda presumably runs around in horror. Rhonda helps Collins, Cora and a few others to carry Tommy's body out, until a few others bump into them causing Collins to be separated and thrown out of view. When Carrie leaves the burning prom Rhonda is shown running with another student.
