LateX – Style Section Title With a Color Filled Box

I was playing with LaTeX in order to create a resume template for my self. I was looking for a way to style title generated by the section command. My goal was to generate color filled box with some text inside and some padding.

This is what I have came up with:

{\parbox{6.5in}{\vspace{.03in}\hspace{.03in}\LaTe X{ is really cool}\vspace{.03in}}}}}

Which produced the following result:
