|Full Name||Dwayne Myers|
|School(s)|| Degrassi Junior High |
|Portrayed By||Darrin Brown|
Starts as: 'Grade 8'
Dwayne Myers was a student at Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High, in class 8D, which seems to be a special class for students with learning or behavioural problems. Considerably taller and heavier than his grade peers, it is possible that Dwayne is actually age 15-16 during his Grade 8 year, and may twice have not achieved promotion to the next grade through his elementary school years. Another possibility is that years before junior high Dwayne might have been held back a grade or two, so during his time in degrassi junior high his teacher might have though it would be better for him to be with students and peers age and also of course his size so he was put ahead a grade. This would mean that when Joey, Wheels and Snake came to Degrassi High School that Dwayne could have very well been in grade 11 since he pretty much seemed at home and very established at the time.
Dwayne has two sidekicks, and in early 1989, the nicknames of those two sidekicks are Stu (actor Kevin Marshall) and Meat (Raffi Malkhassian). As of fall 1990, he seems to be established already as a high school student, demonstrating scorn of the new arrivals (who actually should be in the same grade as him), and one of his two sidekicks is now Tabi, an aggressive girl, the other is Nick.
Dwayne picks on Joey Jeremiah and the two become enemies, though when Dwayne discovers he is HIV-positive, Joey agrees to keep his secret and they reconcile.
Dwayne was known for breaking into the condom machine in the boys' washroom and using the condoms for water balloons.
