NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to New Rochelle’s Philip Edward Berger!

Philip Edward Berger, who was born in New Rochelle, turns 64 on Friday.

Monday, a Republican member of the North Carolina General Assembly, representing the state's twenty-sixth Senate district, including constituents in Guilford and Rockingham counties, was born Aug. 8, 1952. He graduated from George Washington High School in Danville, Va. in 1970 and studied briefly at Danville Community College. Berger earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from Averett College in 1980 and a law degree from Wake Forest University in 1982, after which he entered law practice.

An attorney from Eden, N.C., Berger was first elected to the North Carolina State Senate in 2000. He became Republican leader in 2004, and in 2010, he was selected by his fellow Republicans as their choice for the next Senate President Pro Tem. Berger was officially elected president pro tem when the legislature opened on Jan. 26, 2011.
