Fett, Wautier Become Southern Door Hall of Famers

The Southern Door County School District will hold its eighth annual Alumni Hall of Fame ceremony Oct. 15 to honor Stewart Fett (Class of 1972) and Jim Wautier (Class of 1977) as Southern Door graduates who have made significant contributions in their careers and community and therefore serve as outstanding role models.

Fett earned an associate degree in accounting from NWTC. After nine years as an electrician at Bay Shipbuilding, he became an electrical planner and foreman for an East Coast shipbuilding firm, then returned to Bay Shipbuilding, where he advanced innovation in the marine industry by inventing shipboard electronic systems that are still in use today. He started his own business, TNS Marine Services, in 2019. Fett has also been of service to many community organizations.
