Tschetter earned a bachelor's degree from Bethel University[1] in psychology and social studies.[2] After college, he and some friends traveled and thumbed around Europe, Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Egypt. He returned home and met and married his wife Nancy. "One day we saw this Peace Corps ad and I said to Nancy, 'We're going to do this work stuff the rest of our lives. Let's go out and see if we can do some good,' " Tschetter says.[3] Although the couple wanted to serve in Turkey, Iran, or Afghanistan, Tschetter and his wife were assigned to teach family-planning techniques in Maharashtra,[4] India beginning in 1966.[3] "We lucked out. India was more different than any of them," says Tschetter. "Wow, what a country."[3] Over the years the Tschetters have returned to India five times to visit their friends.[3]

Once as a Peace Corps Volunteer, Tschetter traveled across India to deliver medicine to a village suffering from a small pox epidemic.[5] "Ultimately the village recovered," said Tschetter.[5] "And today, small pox is eradicated in the world and it's because of this and thousands of other experiences like it."[5]
