Please tweak Premiere Pro's automatic captioning of honorifics like "Dr." and "Ms."

As someone who creates online and PEG channel content for a high school district, I've been generating Closed Captions for our coverage of Board of Education meetings for some time now. Aside from proper names (we're a very diverse school district with many ethnic names) and acronyms (educators love these), one of the top issues I have to correct is when Premiere generates a transcript and then a CC layer where names are mentioned and the honorific ("Dr.," "Ms.," "Mr.," etc.) is how one caption screen ends and the person's surname is how the next caption page begins. I think it's safe to say that the honorific and the surname are split between screens about 99% of the time. We have two or three Board of Ed members who are doctors, so every roll call involves me tweaking the CC screens to ensure the honorific and the name aren't split between two screens of caption text.
