CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. (BP)-Doris Wefwafwa of Kenya, a student assistant volleyball coach at Campbellsville University, and a former All-American for the Lady Tigers volleyball team, died unexpectedly Dec. 10 after a short illness.
Wefwafwa, who was to graduate Dec. 14 with a Bachelor of Social Work degree, died at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, Ky. She was 34.
"Campbellsville University will get Doris home to be with her family," said Dave Walters, vice president for admissions and student services, at a prayer service for Wefwafwa Dec. 11 in the Ransdell Chapel. "Doris touched so many lives, and we will do the very best we can to take care of Doris."
Ed Pavy, director of campus ministries at CU, said, "Anyone who knew Doris at all knew that she loved Jesus Christ." Pavy read several scriptures including Psalm 23, and said Wefwafwa will never again be hungry nor thirsty. "Doris was loved by this campus."
Wefwafwa was from Nairobi, Kenya, and transferred to Campbellsville University for her senior year in 2006 after playing at Columbia College in Columbia, Mo.
She helped lead Campbellsville to a perfect 10-0 Mid-South Conference regular season championship in 2006. Wefwafwa was named the Mid-South Conference Volleyball Player of the Week six times last season and the NAIA Region XI Volleyball Player of the Week four times. She was the Mid-South Conference Volleyball Player of the Year at the conclusion of last season.
