This year Webb's Student Council chose to make the Rutherford County Power of Pink initiative its service fundraising project. Early in the year, they sold Power of Pink t-shirts and then hosted a Pink Out soccer, football and basketball games during the year. At these games, they sold pink cookies and cupcakes and handed out pink support ribbons for donations. The total raised was $648.

The Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation Power of Pink Fund provides mammograms for underinsured and uninsured women in Rutherford County, including screenings, diagnostics, ultrasounds and MRIs. In 2018 the Power of Pink funded 1,114 procedures, including 820 screening mammograms.
