DUNK CITY — The students who attend school in Dunk City now have proof.
The Florida Gulf Coast University Eagle ID office created a special Dunk City ID card for students and staff. The card has the student's photo, name and a phrase of their choosing next to an image of a basketball with Dunk City and the FGCU logo.
"We thought it would be a fun thing to do for the school community," said April Lattanzi, the Eagle ID office manager. "We made one for the president that said 'President.' We made one for Mrs. Bradshaw that said 'First Lady of Dunk City'."
The cost? Free, although the school was asking students and staff to donate money to the Harry Chapin Food Bank. There is also the cost of time, as the line for the IDs stretched down the side of the Cohen Center.
Sophomore Amber Savoie, who had "Now we're here" placed under her name, said she thought the cards were "a pretty cool idea."
"It's something that we can keep to remember later on in life what happened," she said. "We can remember when we got big."
Lattanzi said the school has 1,600 of the cards, in honor of the Sweet 16, and will be giving them out in the Eagle ID office until they are gone.
