University of Montevallo and Campus Ministers Association to host professional angler Clay Dyer

The University of Montevallo and the Campus Ministers Association will host a presentation by professional angler Clay Dyer on Monday, Oct. 28, at 4 p.m., in Anna Irvin Hall on the UM campus.

Dyer was born without any lower limbs, no arm on the left side and a partial arm on the right. However, these limitations did not dampen his determination and positive spirit.
