view name of multiselect in list instead of view

In my model i have:

     [ 'Trivial", "1" ],
     [ "Minor", "2" ],
     [ "Major", "3" ]

in my new entry form i have:

<%=, Project::STATUS_TYPES, :prompt => "Select
Status") %>

in my view/project/list i have :
<%= h(project.status) %>

but when my controller lists the project details it only shows the
"id" of the select instead of the name in the model. How do i resolve
the name to id relationship for the view?

any help you have would be great,
Thank you,
