The Indianapolis-based National FFA Organization has chosen an agricultural education leader from North Carolina as its new chief operating officer.

Joshua Bledsoe was named Friday to the post. He'll manage major FFA operations and oversee implementation of the 557,318-member FFA's strategic plan.

The Raleigh, N.C., resident and his family will move to Indianapolis to begin his new role Feb. 18.

National FFA Chief Executive Officer Dr. Dwight Armstrong said Bledsoe has "a wealth of knowledge, relationships and passion for FFA and agricultural education."

The National FFA has 7,498 local FFA chapters in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
