In 2004, Armando Miccoli submitted several forms to the United States Army JROTC program and the Bartow County School Board to add the JROTC program to Adairsville High School. Two years later, Major David Sexauer came to Adairsville with the program. Later that year, Sergeant First Class Charles Gibbs joined Maj. Sexuaer, and the two created Raiders, Drill Team, and Color Guard for the program. On October 15, 2008, the Battalion was approved to start a Rifle Team. Since then First Sergeant Jerry Queen has joined the Tiger Battalion as AI in place of Sgt. Gibbs.
On March 27, 2008 they took part in a Brigade Inspection. Every three years all JROTC Battalions must participate in a formal inspection led by a member from the Sixth Brigade Headquarters and other senior members from various other schools. Subjects in the inspections include various areas of the battalion, such as the supply room, personnel records, and public relations. The Battalion Staff gave the inspectors a formal military style briefing over their different jobs. Each company was also inspected for correct uniform wear and knowledge over questions. A Drill and Color Guard team was also inspected. Tiger Battalion scored a 589 out of a possible, 600 giving it the title of Honor Unit with Distinction.
