None of them compared to Saturday's, though.For the first time ever, the visually impaired 15-year-old was able to hunt for eggs by himself. Thanks to Qwest's Southern Arizona Telecom Pioneers, Quintero could hear where the eggs were hidden. The club outfitted 40 large plastic eggs with electronic circuit boards, batteries and speaker phones so they would emit a beeping noise. On Saturday, the Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind on West Speedway placed those eggs and dozens of others out on the lawn of the campus, so visually and hearing-impaired students could go on a hunt. The students who participated were those who live too far away to get home for the weekend, said Marcy Albert, one of the schools' deans. There were plenty of cheers and giggles as 33 students raced from one egg to the next, sometimes by themselves, other times with friends and staff members by their sides. Again and again, congratulations were heard as students showed off their brightly colored finds and struggled to juggle them.
Quintero found seven eggs during the first hunt of the afternoon.His friends Josh Tall, 15, Jarod Tsosie, 16, and Abram Adison, 15, found 10, nine and three, respectively.
"They were cool, they sounded like bombs," Tsosie said with a grin.Sophomore Cassandra Jones, 16, teamed up with fellow student Alyssia Chiago, 9, for most of the afternoon. "It was just a beautiful day today," Jones said through a sign language interpreter. "I just had a lot of fun." Never taking her eyes off the big white rabbit walking upright through the crowd, Alyssia said she was having so much fun she hadn't even counted her eggs yet. At the end of the hunt, the students turned in their eggs for a large basket filled with goodies. They also visited with members of the Tucson Fire Department, who showed off their fire engine and gear. The Telecom Pioneers were thrilled to bring the beeping eggs to the school for the first time, said Sherry Daughtry, president of the group. "It's been fabulous, oh my gosh,'' Albert said. "It's been beyond my wildest expectations of what it was going to be."
