May 30, 1911, was a special occasion for Issaquah resident Mabel Ek.
So special, in fact, that the moment called for a new outfit. Ek arrived at Issaquah’s Baptist Church, near what is now the Darigold plant, wearing a new dress, knitted gloves and shoes specially ordered from Oregon.
City residents, of which there were only 500 at the time, arrived in droves to honor Ek and her classmates Mary and Olive Gibson.
After all, the three were about to make history, representing the very first graduating class of Issaquah High School.
