Both graduated with journalism degrees from Wichita State in the 1970s.

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.
