Gary Moskowitz Harout Gagulyan won't graduate from Hoover High School until 2005, but the 16-year-old did graduate as a certified computer technician from Mashdots College this weekend. Harout started taking computer courses at Mashdots last summer and, during his junior year of high school this year, he took enough night classes in computer technology at Mashdots to earn a certificate from the college. Harout was one of 250 students to walk at Mashdots College's 2004 graduation ceremony Saturday at Calvary Presbyterian Church, 610 N. Glendale Ave. Approximately 372 students were eligible to graduate this year, but 60 graduated last semester and some graduates could not or chose not to attend the graduation ceremony, officials said.
