Until her death, the Headmistress was the Brong-Ahafo Regional Chair of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Senior High Schools (CHASS).

Eulogising her on behalf of the executive and members of the regional CHASS, Mr. Michael Nsiah-Agyapong, the Secretary described Madam. Boakye as a mother and a team player who related very well with all members and everyone who came into contact with her.

Mr Nsiah-Agyapong, also the Headmaster of Twene Amanfo Senior High/Technical School (TASTECH) in Sunyani said she was pragmatic and receptive and was always prepared to share knowledge with anyone who sought her opinion on matters of mutual interest.

He recalled the late Madam Boakye conducted the regional CHASS meetings with a sense of precision and urgency and represented them at the national executive meetings.
