Tyra McClelland has been a member of American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) for more than 10 years. She began her union career as a representative for AFGE Local 727 Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA). Shortly after joining AFGE, Tyra hit the ground running. She was elected as the local's Secretary Treasurer in 2011, and became the local's Women's Coordinator, as well as the Legislative Political Coordinator. As true unionists do, Tyra is involved in many AFGE committees to include Y.O.U.N.G, Pride, AFL-CIO, and the Law Enforcement Officers' Committee. She was also one of the first to graduate from one of AFGE's premiere advance training programs, P.O.R.T. and P.O.R.T. II: Advance.
Tyra holds a psychology degree from Bowie State University. She is a state-licensed Addiction Counselor and Domestic Violence Counselor, as well as an executive board member of her daughter's Parent Teacher Student Organization. Tyra is currently gaining her certification in Paralegal Studies.
One of Tyra's strengths is her ability to maintain a healthy work/life balance. As a single mother of three children, she is extremely proud of Andrew (member of his Union), Dwayne (a decorated Army Veteran and Union member), and Taryn (a high school honor student).
