As national student loan debt soars at $1.4+ trillion, course helps counselors address nationwide problem MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - May 18, 2017) - An estimated $1.7 million boost is coming to the Minneapolis economy when more than 1,600 community-development professionals from around the country convene in the city for the NeighborWorks Training Institute May 22-26. The week-long event is hosted by the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation, dba NeighborWorks America, a national, congressionally chartered nonprofit that creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities. Included in the more than 100 affordable housing, community development and nonprofit management classes and workshops at the NeighborWorks Training Institute is the course Effective Approaches to Student Loan Counseling (HO255), which highlights effective ways to teach borrowers about a wide array of Federal and private student loan products. At a time when many young adults are graduating from college, the participants in the course will learn how to help borrowers develop a strategy to meet the financial responsibility of this type of debt. National student loan debt is currently more than $1.4 trillion, and people who graduate from college in Minnesota have an average of $21,744 in debt, more than in most states. "NeighborWorks Training Institutes give community-development professionals the knowledge to go back to their communities and make strong contributions and a local impact," said Paul Weech, chief executive officer of NeighborWorks America. "Student loans can confuse borrowers, and we're pleased that this course is helping counselors talk through options for borrowers, and those struggling to make student loan payments." A new survey from NeighborWorks America showed that U.S. adults with student loan debt were more likely to say that they need guidance on financial situations. Nearly 30 percent of adults have no emergency savings, according to the same survey, which means that a person already struggling to pay student loans could have one unexpected hardship, like a medical bill, and fall further into financial trouble. The NeighborWorks Training Institute in Minneapolis is supported by a variety of partners, including JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Fifth Third Bank, NeighborWorks Capital, Wells Fargo Housing Foundation, Bank of America, HUD, Citi and Citi Foundation, Bank of the West, BB&T, and Capital One. In addition to the training institute, NeighborWorks organizations work every day to serve Minnesota. The following NeighborWorks organizations are in Minnesota: Aeon, CommonBond Communities, Dayton's Bluff Neighborhood Housing Services, Midwest Minnesota Community Development Corporation, NeighborWorks Home Partners, One Roof Community Housing, and Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership. In fiscal year 2016, NeighborWorks organizations in Minnesota generated nearly $305 million in total direct investment and served more than 14,500 individuals and families.

The company has expanded sales of the HondaJet to Southeast Asia and received multiple aircraft orders to support a new fractional ownership program in the United Kingdom and Southern Europe. “Following a strong introduction of the HondaJet at ABACE 2017 and significant interest from customers about owning a HondaJet, we are beginning aircraft sales in Southeast Asia,” said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “We see great potential for the HondaJet in Southeast Asia, one of the world’s fastest growing regions.” Honda Aircraft Company has partnered with Thai Aerospace Services (TAS) to establish HondaJet Southeast Asia. TAS will provide sales, service and support for HondaJet customers in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore and Vietnam. TAS is a leading aviation company headquartered in Bangkok with more than 40 years of aviation experience. “Thai Aerospace Services is honored to be selected as a partner to sell and support the HondaJet in Southeast Asia,” said Kasabol Bowonsrikan, CEO and managing director of Thai Aerospace Services. “With Bangkok’s central location among the ASEAN countries and proximity to major international hubs like Hong Kong, the range of the HondaJet extends to every destination in the region.” Honda Aircraft Company has received multiple orders from a customer who will be using a fleet of HondaJets to launch a fractional owner-pilot program. The company, FlyHonda, allows customers the opportunity to fly as a co-pilot and will offer the service in the United Kingdom and Southern Europe.

On its route to Panama, the HondaJet set a speed record on April 19, 2017. The National Aeronautical Association recognized the HondaJet flew from Miami to Panama in 3 hours and 7 minutes even with an average headwind of 35 knots (40 mph). The HondaJet departed Miami at 2:40 p.m. (EDT) and quickly climbed to 43,000 feet, allowing the crew to navigate over the weather and traffic. It arrived to the Panama Pacifico Airport at 5:47 p.m. (EDT), setting a record. Honda Aircraft Company also announced it has appointed a sales and service dealer in South America with a Buenos Aires-based Hangar Uno.

On Jan 18, 2017, a student in a classroom of a high school in Monterrey Mexico pulled out a .22 caliber handgun and began shooting at his teacher and classmates. Everyone in the room stayed seated in their chairs or went to the floor in an attempt to hide from the gunman. In less than a minute, 4 people were wounded, 3 critically with head wounds, and the shooter killed himself. Nobody attempted to leave the room until the shooting was over. Greg Crane, President and CEO of the ALICE Training Institute, says “This response is similar to the actions taken by those trained only in Lockdown protocols, where people are told to be passive, remain static and wait for Law Enforcement response.” Two days later on January 20, a shooting occurred at West Liberty-Salem High School in Ohio just before school was starting. Upon hearing the shotgun blast, many students ran into rooms and barricaded the doors. Others broke out windows in order to facilitate an evacuation of the building to safety. Staff in the vicinity of the shooter rushed him, took him to the ground, and held him until the police arrived five minutes later. The targeted student suffered gunshot wounds. None of the other students who evacuated the building or the staff who subdued the shooter reportedly were injured. Kraig Hissong, Superintendent of West Liberty-Salem School District said in his press conference: “I would like to thank my staff and students who did what they were trained to do today, which was to follow the ALICE protocols.” Champaign County Sheriff Michael Melvin said, "more people would have been wounded at the West Liberty school building on Friday morning without the intervention because the shooter's intent was to harm more people." Crane praised the actions of the school. “This is the value of preparation. But to be prepared, we have to spend the time and effort to train everyone in their survival options, and then practice those skills.” The ALICE Training Institute prays for the swift recovery of the victim and expresses extreme gratitude and pride for the staff, students. Staff and students' quick thinking and actions at West Liberty-Salem High School saved lives. ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate) is the nation’s first training program for citizens to increase their survival chances and save lives, if faced with a Violent Intruder. The ALICE Training Institute has trained thousands of police departments, K-12 school districts, higher education, businesses, hospitals, and houses of worship in the ALICE protocols over the last 15 years. The Institute is located in Medina, Ohio. For further information, please go to http://www.alicetraining.com.
