Academy Award winner and Montgomery native Octavia Spencer is coming home and will be honored at the Alabama State House.

Lawmakers are expected to proclaim next Wednesday as 'Octavia Spencer Day in Alabama' during a joint legislative session.

Outside the State House, her Alma Mater's band, Jeff Davis High School, will perform during a welcome home ceremony.

After, Spencer will attend a private reception at the Renaissance where the Mayor will present her with a key to the city.

Spencer racked up awards for her role as 'Minnie' in The Help.

In addition to the Oscar, she took home a Golden Globe and Screen Actor's Guild Award.
