I have been trying to figure how to remove the period under my subsection title in my CV. This is what I have in one of my sections.

enter image description here

\section{Honors and Awards}
    \item {Honor 1}, 2012 - Present
    \item {Honor 2}, 2015 - Present
    \item {Honor 3}, 2013 - 2015

In the image you can see a period under the A in Academic. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

This is embedded in the construction of the \cventry and is specific to the \moderncvstyle you choose. In your particular case, the casual style's \cventry inserts a .:

    \ifthenelse{\equal{#4}{}}{}{, {\slshape#4}}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#5}{}}{}{, #5}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#6}{}}{}{, #6}%
    .\strut% <---------------------------------- '.' & \strut inserted

You can remove this . insertion globally via an xpatch patch:


The above can be inserted in the preamble after loading the style.
