_Forty one years ago a lady named Peg Schernikau had a dream of giving her 5 kids beautiful straight smiles. To make this a reality (on a really tight budget) she had to come up with a new source of income. Peg learned about detasseling and decided it could be the answer to that dream. Peg started with 10 kids in the back of a truck, today P.S. Detasseling hires over 300 kids each summer.
