This is the second in a three-part series on Maryland-based finalists for the Service to America Medals, or Sammies, one of the highest honors bestowed on civil servants. The winners will be announced next month. When Nicole Faison began working in a Baltimore public housing community in the late 1990s, she quickly caught on to what she described as "the game." The more public housing residents earn, the more they pay in rent. So, to keep their rent low, tenants don't always report second and third jobs or welfare and Social Security benefits to housing officials.

Director George Faison saw something timeless in West Side Story. He loved the way the musical asked the audience to look at America, the way it gave everyday events a sense of artistry and the way it dealt with social issues. It was a musical that Faison wanted to pass down to a new generation of theatergoers. "It is a blueprint, and they captured so well those times and these times," Faison said. "There are so many things that divide us in this society that there are still lessons this great musical can teach."
