Two master storytellers, Carol McAdoo Rehme and Norman Rehme, have been selected as recipients of this year's Elliott School of Communication Outstanding Alumni Award.
They will be honored Wednesday, Oct. 19, at a reception and make presentations about their work during the Elliott School's annual Comm Week celebration, this year called ESC Connect.
They are the first married couple to be honored.
Norman Rehme is a nationally recognized, certified master photographer with 42 years of experience.
Carol Rehme began her career at The Wichita Sun, and Norman Rehme is a former photojournalist at KAKE Channel 10 in Wichita and KBTV in Denver.
Lou Heldman, interim director of the Elliott School, announced the selection.
The Rehmes, he said, are involved in promoting and advocating for the arts in their hometown of Loveland, Colo.
"The mission of the Elliott School is rooted in the fundamental communication arts – writing, speaking and visual communication," said Heldman. "The Rehmes' four decades of achievement in these areas makes them very worthwhile recipients of this honor."
The award has been presented annually since 2001. Previous winners are: Alan Schroeder, Quincalee Brown, Al Higdon, Cliff Tarpy, Cathy Henkel, Vaughn Sink, Orin Friesen, Ralph Vautravers, Sara Quinn and Gary Bender.
