The second “Black Jack” Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division has helped build and renovate 25 school facilities
the Kirkuk, Iraq province.  For the very first time three villages (Saba Nissan, Al Fashka, and Al Wadwai)
will have a place for their children to go for education.  Another facility constructed in Qaranaw will be able to
facilitate over 500 students, which is a first for the community.   
According to Lt. Col. Terry Cook, most of the efforts are going into renovating as opposed to new construction. 
The Iraqi Ministry of Education assessed that they need 200 new schools throughout the province to accommodate the
needs of the population.
